Genetic Analysis of Selected Strains of Eastern Oyster (Crassostrea virginica Gmelin) Using AFLP and Microsatellite Markers

Amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) and microsatellite markers were used to examine genetic variation and divergence in 4 selected strains (DBH, NEH, FMF, and CTS) and 1 wild population (DBW) of the eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica Gmelin. Eighty-six AFLP markers (from 3 primer pairs) and 5 microsatellite loci were used for the analysis of… CONTINUE READING
