DNA fingerprinting used to test for family effects on precocious sexual maturation in two populations of Oncorhynchus tshawytscha (Chinook salmon)


Two single locus Variable Number Tandem Repeat (VNTR) DNA probes were used to test for differences in allele distribution between precociously mature male and immature chinook salmon, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha. Two populations were examined: Robertson Creek (RC) adult salmon, and Nicola River (NR) freshwater juveniles, or parr. Genomic DNA was extracted from… (More)
