Abstract:

We have used a RAPD-based technique to identify several microsatellite repeats in turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) and Dover sole (Solea solea) and report the characterization of six novel polymorphic microsatellite markers for Dover sole. These are the first such markers to be developed for this flatfish species. They exhibit much higher levels of heterozygosity than those previously observed with allozyme loci and should prove useful in addressing population genetic questions as well as more fundamental aquaculture-related questions.
