Despite their unmatched popularity in many research areas, microsatellites have not yet become a major tool for the inference of genealogical relationships of closely related species. Recent studies have successfully extended the repertoire of microsatellite analysis beyond population genetics and demonstrate that phylogenetic relationships of closely related species can be inferred accurately with fewer loci than previously assumed.
