WHICHRUN (version 3.2): a computer program for population assignment of individuals based on multilocus genotype data.
Isolation and inheritance of novel microsatellites in Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tschawytscha)
Characterizing a mutant allele at Ots-2 offers the first step toward understanding mutation rates for chinook microsatellites, and these new loci provide reliable markers for high-resolution population genetics studies of this species.
Which Genetic Loci Have Greater Population Assignment Power?
SUMMARY WHICHLOCI is a program that determines the relative discriminatory power of alternate genetic loci and loci combinations for population assignment of individuals. AVAILABILITY…
INFLUENCE OF BARRIERS TO MOVEMENT ON WITHIN‐WATERSHED GENETIC VARIATION OF COASTAL CUTTHROAT TROUT
Results indicate that Camp Creek coastal cutthroat trout exist as many small, partially independent populations that are strongly affected by genetic drift, and in headwater streams, barriers to movement can result in genetic and demographic isolation leading to reduced genetic diversity, and potentially compromising long-term population persistence.
Differentiating salmon populations at broad and fine geographical scales with microsatellites and single nucleotide polymorphisms
The results indicate that both types of markers are likely to be useful in population genetics studies and that, in some cases, a combination of SNPs and microsatellites may be the most effective suite of loci.
Analysis of microsatellite DNA resolves genetic structure and diversity of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in California's Central Valley
With the exception of the discovery of two distinct lineages of spring run, genetic structure accords with the diverse chinook life histories seen in California's Central Valley.
New tetranucleotide microsatellites for fine‐scale discrimination among endangered chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)
Highly variable tetranucleotide microsatellites are isolated and developed for the specific goal of increasing discriminatory power among closely related populations, providing a new power towards the reliable differentiation of nonwinter runs.

It is shown with molecular parentage analysis that hatchery coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) had lower reproductive success than wild fish once they reproduced in the wild, and three lines of evidence are reported pointing to the absence of sexual selection in the hatchery as a contributing mechanism for fitness declines of hatchery fish in theWild.
Anthropogenic habitat alteration leads to rapid loss of adaptive variation and restoration potential in wild salmon populations

Dramatic, human-induced changes in adult migration characteristics of wild Chinook salmon are explained by rapid evolution at a single locus and can lead to loss of a critical adaptive allele, highlighting the need to conserve and restore critical adaptive variation before the potential for recovery is lost.
Development of a Standardized DNA Database for Chinook Salmon
A dataset of over 16,000 Chinook salmon representing 110 putative populations was constructed ranging throughout the area of interest of the Pacific Salmon Commission from Southeast Alaska to the Sacramento River in California, and provides a tool for genetic stock identification of salmon.
