The Korean pen shell Atrina pectinata is a commercially valuable species in Korea. The commercial catch of this fish has decreased continuously since 1990. However, its genetic characteristics have never been studied. In order to explore the population genetic structure of this species, 125 pen shells sampled from three major habitats along the western(More)
Pen shell (Atrina pectinata) is a popular food source with a high commercial value in a number of Asian Pacific areas. The natural A. pectinata population has been declining continuously over the past several decades. Microsatellite DNA markers are a useful DNA-based tool for monitoring the genetic variation of pen shell populations. In this study, 20(More)
In this study, we developed 20 polymorphic microsatellite markers for the Korean black scraper, Thamnaconus modestus (Günther, 1877), Monacanthidae, and used them to compare allelic variation between wild and hatchery populations in Korea. All loci were readily amplified and demonstrated allelic variability, with the number of alleles ranging from 5-35 in(More)
