We used a PCR-based technique to isolate 18 microsatellite loci for the largemouth bass, Micropterus salmoides. These loci were characterized using sampled populations in Florida and Wisconsin. The mean number of alleles at a locus was 8 for the sample from Florida and 5 for the samples from Wisconsin. The observed heterozygosities were 0.57 and 0.33 for… CONTINUE READING
