DNA-based identification of Alaska skates (Amblyraja, Bathyraja and Raja: Rajidae) using cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (coI) variation
Variation at the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (mt-COI) gene was examined in 15 species of North Pacific skates. Thirteen species had unique sequences, indicating that a DNA-basedExpand

Genetic isolation by distance and localized fjord population structure in Pacific cod (Gadus macrocephalus): limited effective dispersal in the northeastern Pacific Ocean
Genetic population structure of Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus, was examined across much of its northeast- ern Pacific range by screening variation at 11 microsatellite DNA loci. Estimates of FSTExpand

Development and characterization of novel tetra-, tri-, and dinucleotide microsatellite markers in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
We discuss the development and characterization of 40 polymorphic rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) microsatellite loci. We used enriched libraries to isolate 14 dinucleotide, seven trinucleodide,Expand

Multiple ice‐age refugia in Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus
Pleistocene ice‐ages greatly influenced the historical abundances of Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus, in the North Pacific and its marginal seas. We surveyed genetic variation at 11 microsatelliteExpand

Biogeographic evidence for selection on mitochondrial DNA in North Pacific walleye pollock Theragra chalcogramma.
Three major mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups were identified in 5 data sets for North Pacific and Bering Sea walleye pollock. The common haplogroup A showed mirror-image clines on both sides ofExpand

Molecular systematics of the skate subgenus Arctoraja (Bathyraja: Rajidae) and support for an undescribed species, the leopard skate, with comments on the phylogenetics of Bathyraja
Sequence variability in the cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene from 226 samples of the species previously considered Bathyraja parmifera (Rajidae) revealed three distinct haplotypes, one of whichExpand

Early larvae of Zesticelus profundorum (family Cottidae) identified using DNA barcoding
Early larvae of Flabby Sculpin, Zesticelus profundorum, are described using DNA barcoding methods to identify specimens collected in the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea. Based on the low myomere count,Expand

Twelve microsatellite loci for lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush)
We describe 12 microsatellite loci isolated from lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush). The number of alleles at these loci ranged from two to 11 with an average of 5.3 alleles per locus. The expectedExpand

Landscape Genetics Reveals Population Subdivision in Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Pacific Cod
Abstract Landscape genetics of Pacific cod Gadus macrocephalus within the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) management area of Alaska was examined in samples from nine spawning locations,Expand

Bathyraja panthera, a new species of skate (Rajidae: Arhynchobatinae) from the western Aleutian Islands, and resurrection of the subgenus Arctoraja Ishiyama
We provide morphological and molecular evidence to recognize a new species of skate from the North Pacific, Bathyraja panthera. We also resurrect the skate subgenus Arctoraja Ishiyama, confirming itsExpand
