DNA Microsatellite and Sex Identification Markers for Emperor Goose (Chen canagica) and Cross-Species Amplification of Microsatellites in Select Goose Species, Alaska 2016

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This data set contains allele sizes for 30 individuals of 9 previously published and 20 novel microsatellite loci and the molecular sex verification (n = 31) of Emperor Geese (Chen canagica) from various locations across Alaska. The allele sizes for the 20 microsatellite loci developed in this study are included for 10 White-fronted Geese (Anser albifrons) from Selawik, 11 Black Brant (Branta bernicla nigricans) from Kigigak Island, 10 Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) from Copper River Delta, and 9 Cackling Geese (Branta hutchinsii) from lower Kashunuk River (Hock Slough) and Tutakoke River.
