The genetic diversity of Saccharina japonica inhabiting the Hokkaido coastline and the surrounding area was investigated by AFLP and SSR analyses. A STRUCTURE analysis based on the AFLP data identified two clusters in the species, although a few local populations with genetic structures different from that of the neighboring populations were detected. The two clusters could be identified even within each current variety. In the SSR analysis, genetic variation in nucleotide sequences in all… CONTINUE READING
