Abstract

Among the numerous molecular markers available in population genetics, microsatellites are one of the most powerful tools developed in recent years. This paper describes the isolation of six polymorphic microsatellite loci in the tiger mosquito Aedes albopictus using an enriched genomic library technique. Such loci should be an efficient tool in population genetic studies for this mosquito species.
