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

J. H. Kang, Lee, J. M., Noh, E. S., Park, J. Y., and An, C. M., Genetic characterization of Mytilus coruscus and M. galloprovincialis using microsatellite markers, vol. 12, pp. 5494-5505, 2013.

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.
