Number of informative meioses. Comparison of the number of informative meioses of microsatellites and SNPs. Informative meioses are highly dependent on the variability of the marker. The microsatellite markers exhibit significantly more informative meioses than the SNPs (t-test, t = 10.71, p < 0.0001(two-tailed), d.f. = 19.44).
