Evaluation of genetic diversity in Pampus argenteus using SSR markers

Author(s): Y. Qin, G. Shi and Y. Sun

In order to evaluate the germplasm resources of Pampus argenteus silver pomfret, the genetic diversity and population structure of 132 silver pomfret samples collected from the three regions (the East China Sea, the Yellow Sea and the Bohai Sea) were examined using 13 polymorphic microsatellite loci. Results indicated a high level of genetic diversity. The total number of observed alleles was 68, the mean allele number was 5.46 per locus, and the mean number of effective alleles was 4.91.
