Wild And Aquaculture Populations Of The Eastern Oyster Compared Using Microsatellites, J Carlsson, Cl Morrison, Ks Reece Dec 2006

Wild And Aquaculture Populations Of The Eastern Oyster Compared Using Microsatellites, J Carlsson, Cl Morrison, Ks Reece

VIMS Articles

Five new microsatellite markers were developed for the eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica), and allelic variability was compared between a wild Chesapeake Bay population (James River) and a hatchery strain (DEBY (TM)). All loci amplified readily and demonstrated allelic variability with the number of alleles ranging from 16 to 36 in the wild population and from 11 to 19 in the DEBY (TM) strain. Average observed and expected heterozygosities were estimated at 0.66 and 0.80 in the hatchery sample. The corresponding estimates were 0.91 and 0.75 in the wild sample. Results indicated lower genetic variability in the ...


Genetic Analysis Of White Marlin (Tetrapturus Albidus) Stock Structure, Je Graves, Jr Mcdowell Nov 2006

Genetic Analysis Of White Marlin (Tetrapturus Albidus) Stock Structure, Je Graves, Jr Mcdowell

VIMS Articles

The genetic basis of stock structure of white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus Poey, 1860) was inferred from analyses of five tetranucleotide repeat microsatellite loci (n = 214) and the mitochondrial (mt)DNA control region (n = 99) of white marlin from four geographic regions in the Atlantic Ocean. Considerable genetic variation was present in all collections for all molecular markers. Analysis of replicate collections taken in different years from three regions revealed no significant differences in the distribution of allele frequencies among years within regions. The value of global F-statistics for both multilocus microsatellite data and mtDNA control region sequences approached significance (0 ...
