An AFLP-based approach for the identification of sex-linked markers in blunt snout bream, Megalobrama amblycephala (Cyprinidae).

Abstract

Sex-specific DNA markers are useful for studying sex-determination mechanisms and establishment of monosex populations. Three widely spaced geographical populations (Liangzi, Poyang and Yuni Lakes in China) of blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala) were screened with AFLPs to search for sex-linked markers.
