We isolated 24 polymorphic microsatellite markers from the toxic dinoflagellate A. tamiyavanichii. These loci provide a class of highly variable genetic markers, as the number of alleles ranged from 2 to 6, and the estimate of gene diversity was from 0.269 to 0.739 across the 24 microsatellites. We consider that these loci have a potentially to reveal the genetic structure and gene flow among A. tamiyavanichii populations.
