[2020] Development of new SNP and INDEL loci for the valuable African timber species Lophira alata. Conservation Genetics Resources.

The timber of the species Lophira alata (azobe) is very popular for outdoor constructions, which favours its overexploitation and illegal logging. We sampled individuals from Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo Brazzaville and Republic Democratic of Congo to discover new nuclear and plastidial SNP and INDEL loci through restriction associated DNA sequencing (RADSeq) and low coverage MiSeq genome sequencing. From an initial set of 397 loci, a final set of 126 loci was selected for timber tracking purposes.
