n] repeat was also isolated as part of M1 microsatellite (RAPD B20 locus), a highly polymorphic marker that has been used to study genetic diversity of wild and cultured shrimp and track the pedigree of the USMSFP breeding program (Garcia et al.
Results indicate that at least two of the three microsatellites tested are useful for genetic diversity studies of wild shrimp populations, and all three microsatellites are useful as a managing tool to trace and maintain quality of the pedigree and estimate allele diversity among lines of the USMSFP breeding program.
USMSFP suggested procedures and guidelines for assuring the specific pathogen status of shrimp broodstock and seed.
50] and bioaccumulation of Cd at different stages of shrimp development using PLs from genetically different shrimp stocks such as the TSV-resistant and High Growth lines maintained by the USMSFP.
2002) more research is needed to understand the mechanisms by which Cd affects growth and early development in PLs from disease susceptible (Kona) and disease resistant (TSV-R) lines from the USMSFP.
No PCR products were amplified in SPF shrimp of the USMSFP, confirming that SPF shrimp from the USMSFP are free of WSSV.
vannamei from the USMSFP using published procedures (Reville et al.
Research is urgently needed to use the current pedigree of the USMSFP lines to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in the creation of new mutations and evolution of shrimp microsatellites.
