Locus effects and sources of error in noninvasive genotyping


Journal Article

In spite of more than a decade of research on noninvasive genetic sampling, the low quality and quantity of DNA in noninvasive studies continue to plague researchers. Effects of locus size on error have been documented but are still poorly understood. Further, sources of error other than allelic dropout have been described but are often not well quantified. Here we analyse the effects of locus size on allelic dropout, amplification success and error rates in noninvasive genotyping studies of three species, and quantify error other than allelic dropout. © 2005 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
