Thirty polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for the Atlantic surfclam, Spisula solidissima, from an enriched library and characterized in 24 clams from a wild population. The number of alleles ranged from 3 to 16 per locus. The expected and observed heterozygosities ranged from 0.1942 to 0.9238 and 0.0833 to 0.875 respectively. Six loci showed significant (P < 0.05 after Bonferroni correction) deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, probably because of the presence of null… CONTINUE READING
