SNPs for population monitoring of moose (Alces alces).

We have developed a panel of 86 autosomal SNPs by de novo reduced representation sequencing of 34 moose (16 female, 18 male) sampled throughout Sweden. The SNPs separates individuals with high confidence and are also informative for population level analyses. Furthermore, three SNPs for sex identification of moose and three SNPs diagnostic for sympatric deer species have been discovered de-novo and are included in the panel.
