DNA Microsatellite Markers for Northern Fulmar (Fulmaris glacialis) and Cross-species Amplification in Select Seabird Species

December 20, 2019

This data set is comprised of one table with sampling information and allele sizes for 69 individual Northern Fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) from Chagulak Island, Alaska and Hafnarey Island, Iceland. Fulmar allele sizes are provided for 10 previously published and 26 novel microsatellite loci. Additionally, allele sizes for the 26 microsatellite loci developed in this study are included for Arctic Terns (Sterna paradisaea, n=4), Common Murres (Uria aalge, n=6), Crested Auklets (Aethia cristatella, n=6), Fork-tailed Storm Petrels (Oceanodroma furcata, n=5), Marbled Murrelets (Brachyramphus marmoratus, n=5), Common Gulls (Larus canus, n=5), Pelagic cormorants (Phalacrocorax pelagicus, n=5), and Thick-billed Murres (Uria lomvia, n=5) from various locations throughout Alaska.
