Table 3 Individual identification through genotyping: Six microsatellite loci (PUN124, PUN 229, PUN935, PUN1157, PUN132 and PUN894) were selected for individual identification.

From: Noninvasive genetic population survey of snow leopards (Panthera uncia) in Kangchenjunga conservation area, Shey Phoksundo National Park and surrounding buffer zones of Nepal

  1. Ten samples, which were snow leopard positive on species PCR identification, successfully amplified across all 6 microsatellite loci. There were two samples from Shey area of SPNP that had complete match across all 6 microsatellite loci and were identified as samples from the same individual. A total of 9 snow leopards were identified from SPNP and KCA.
