Genetic characterization and evaluation of anthropogenic impacts on genetic patterns in cultured and wild populations of mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) from Greece

I. A. Giantsis, Kravva, N., and Apostolidis, A. P., Genetic characterization and evaluation of anthropogenic impacts on genetic patterns in cultured and wild populations of mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) from Greece, vol. 11, pp. 3814-3823, 2012.

Despite the great commercial and economic importance of mussels, Mytilus galloprovincialis (Bivalvia, Mollusca) in Greece, little information is available concerning their population genetic structure. We used RAPD markers to examine genetic differentiation and potential impact of aquaculture practices and other anthropogenic activities on the genetic structure of two cultivated and eight wild mussel populations collected from one Turkish and nine Greek coast sites. Five random decamer primers were chosen, among 34 tested, for the analysis of 433 individuals.

Genetic characterization of Mytilus coruscus and M. galloprovincialis using microsatellite markers

Korean (hard-shelled) mussels (Mytilus coruscus) are an economically important endemic marine bivalve mollusk of Korea; yet, the population has rapidly declined because of overharvesting and habitat competition from the invasive Mytilus galloprovincialis species. The population structures of M. coruscus and M. galloprovincialis were analyzed by next-generation sequencing using 5 microsatellite markers specifically developed for M. coruscus. M.
