1. The open sharing of microsat data allows others to check my analyses and do more analyses if new statistical analyses are developed.
2. The sharing of datasets enables the reproducibility of science as “anyone that had the data could also get to the same conclusions I came to especially if they read the paper and use my data”.
3. Microsatellite genetic data can be loosely used to compare data when stored in an open access repository.
