Q. H. Li, Li, Z. B., Dai, G., Chen, X. J., Chen, L. N., Cao, Y. Y., Shangguan, J. B., and Ning, Y. F., Characterization of new microsatellite markers of Siganus fuscescens (Siganidae), vol. 12, pp. 2751-2754, 2013.

Siganus fuscescens, which is a small commercially important marine fish, is wildly distributed in shallow waters throughout the tropical and subtropical Indo-Pacific and Eastern Mediterranean regions. It is part of a group known as rabbitfish. Fifteen new polymorphic microsatellite markers for S. fuscescens were identified, and 32 wild individuals were used to evaluate the degree of polymorphism of these markers. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 12, and the polymorphism information content ranged from 0.210 to 0.849.
