    Abstract: Gerbillus nigeriae is a sand-dwelling and semi-arid adapted rodent species restricted to the West African Sahel where it causes extensive damages to cereal crops such as millet and sorghum. It also displays one of the most extensive floating chromosomal polymorphisms currently known in mammals, showing a non-random spatial distribution of diploid n... Show More

    Abstract: In the present study, 103 microsatellite markers were selected for cross-species amplification in four marine economic scallop species (Argopecten irradians, Chlamys farreri, Chlamys nobilis, and Mizuhopecten yessoensis) belonging to the family Pectinidae. As a result, in the 72 markers originated from C. farreri, 12 showed amplification products i... Show More
