Translocation of wild populations: conservation implications for the genetic diversity of the black‐lipped pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera
Translocation has been widely studied as a tool for conservation management to restore or enhance degraded populations. On the contrary, few studies have been conducted on translocation forExpand

Revisiting metazoan phylogeny with genomic sampling of all phyla
Proper biological interpretation of a phylogeny can sometimes hinge on the placement of key taxa—or fail when such key taxa are not sampled. In this light, we here present the first attempt toExpand

Identification of genes associated with shell color in the black-lipped pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera
BackgroundColor polymorphism in the nacre of pteriomorphian bivalves is of great interest for the pearl culture industry. The nacreous layer of the Polynesian black-lipped pearl oyster PinctadaExpand

Patterns of lineage diversification in rabbitfishes.
Fishes of the tropical Indo-Pacific family Siganidae comprise 28 species, characterized by their body proportions and their colour patterns. A mitochondrial phylogeny of 20 Siganidae species wasExpand

Docking for an autonomous ocean sampling network
In this paper, we examine the issues associated with docking autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) operating within an Autonomous Ocean Sampling Network (AOSN). We present a system based upon anExpand

A family-level Tree of Life for bivalves based on a Sanger-sequencing approach.
The systematics of the molluscan class Bivalvia are explored using a 5-gene Sanger-based approach including the largest taxon sampling to date, encompassing 219 ingroup species spanning 93 (or 82%)Expand

Cytochrome b barcoding, molecular systematics and geographic differentiation in rabbitfishes (Siganidae).
The fish genus Siganus (Siganidae) is widely distributed in the coastal habitats of all the tropical Indo-Pacific, with 28 nominal species recognized so far, based on general morphology andExpand

Correction method for null alleles in species with variable microsatellite flanking regions, a case study of the black-lipped pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera.
In bivalves, heterozygote deficiencies and departures from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE) in microsatellite analysis are common and mainly attributed to inbreeding, genetic patchiness (WalhundExpand

Re-evaluating the phylogeny of Sipuncula through transcriptomics.
Sipunculans (also known as peanut worms) are an ancient group of exclusively marine worms with a global distribution and a fossil record that dates back to the Early Cambrian. The systematics ofExpand

Cementing mussels to oysters in the pteriomorphian tree: a phylogenomic approach
Mussels (Mytilida) are a group of bivalves with ancient origins and some of the most important commercial shellfish worldwide. Mytilida consists of approximately 400 species found in various littoralExpand
