Data Release Policy

All primer sequence and amplification information is being made available as a public service. These data may be freely downloaded and used for general use and continued research purposes. The only request/restriction is that the source of these sequences be cited in any follow-on publication as follows.

For all GCPM and PMGC markers, please cite the following web page:

For all ORPM markers, please cite:

In addition, please provide the consortium with information on primer utility and species specificity so that the SSR primer database can be updated. This information will be entered into the SSR primer spreadsheet and made publicly available. Acknowledgement of your contributions will be made as a reference line in the spreadsheet.

Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
