Simple sequence repeat-based analysis of the genetic diversity and population genetic structure of populations of Siniperca chuatsi

C. F. Sun, Ye, X., Tian, Y. Y., and Dong, J. J., Simple sequence repeat-based analysis of the genetic diversity and population genetic structure of populations of Siniperca chuatsi, vol. 14, pp. 9343-9352, 2015.

In order to provide genetic information for the selective breeding of Siniperca chuatsi, 14 microsatellite DNA loci were used to evaluate the genetic diversity and structure of four farmed populations and one wild population in China. The four cultivated populations were Foshan (FS), Jiangmen (JM), Nanjing (NJ), and Hongze Lake (HZL), and the wild population was collected from the Hubei HuangGang section of the Yangtze River (HG).

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in Branchiostoma belcheri Gray (Amphioxus)

Z. B. Li, Huang, Y. S., Shangguan, J. B., Ning, Y. F., Yi, Y., and Dai, G., Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in Branchiostoma belcheri Gray (Amphioxus), vol. 14, pp. 10224-10227, 2015.

Branchiostoma belcheri Gray is a second-class, nationally protected protochordate in China. We developed 10 novel polymorphic sites in B. belcheri, which were examined using a population of 30 wild individuals from Xiamen, China. The polymorphism information content ranged between 0.141 and 0.681, and the number of alleles varied from 2 to 5. The expected and observed heterozygosities varied between 0.1528 and 0.6920, and between 0.1429 and 0.5000, respectively. These novel microsatellite markers will facilitate the genetic analysis and protection of wild B.
