Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have identified eight polymorphic microsatellite loci from the aquatic haploid fungus Tetracladium marchalianum. Microsatellite polymorphism was evaluated using 90 fungal isolates, each of single spore origin, from submerged leaves in Illinois and Wisconsin rivers in the USA. The number of alleles observed for a single locus ranged from three to 13, with up to 10 observed from a population. These genetic markers will be useful to evaluate population structure, genotypic diversity, and the reproductive mode of T. marchalianum.
