Tracking biological invasion is an essential part of conservation, and identifying invasive species quickly following an introduction can be imperative. Invasive organisms are often difficult to distinguish visually, which can delay appropriate response measures. We have designed a multiplex-PCR system to effectively distinguish colonies of divergent(More)
Heterozygote disadvantage is potentially a potent driver of population genetic divergence. Also referred to as underdominance, this phenomena describes a situation where a genetic heterozygote has a lower overall fitness than either homozygote. Attention so far has mostly been given to underdominance within a single population and the maintenance of genetic(More)
In order to better characterize the placement of genus Tripneustes, as a representative of the Toxopneustidae family within the broader sea urchin mitochondrial (MT) phylogeny, the complete MT genome of Tripneustes gratilla was generated and compared with all published echinoid MT genomes currently available on NCBI GenBank. The MT genome phylogeny supports(More)
