Seventeen microsatellite markers were isolated from expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of Pinctada martensii for genetic resource monitoring. All loci amplified consistently in a wild Sanya Bay population and in a hatchery strain produced by intraspecific cross breeding. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 11 as characterized in 21 wild pearl(More)
Fourteen microsatellite markers were developed for the black-lipped pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera, by mining GenBank microsatellite sequences, redesigning primers. Those markers, characterized in 24 individuals from a wild population, were polymorphic with allele numbers ranging from 3 to 11 per locus. Polymorphism information content ranged from(More)
