Gopalakrishnan, A (2009) Application of molecular genetic markers in fisheries & aquaculture- Winter School on Recent Advances in Breeding and Larviculture of Marine Finfish and Shellfish. [Teaching Resource]
Establishment of genetic markers is the prerequisite for stock structure analysis. The markers can detect genetic variations and they can be explained and analysed within the limits of genetic principles. Based on their mode of transmission and evolutionary dynamics genetic markers can be categorized into (1) protein markers such as allozymes and (2) DNA markers such as (2.1) mitochondrial DNA and (2.2) nuclear DNA markers like randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPDs) and variable number of tandem repeats (VNTRs) loci such as minisatellites and microsatellites.
