Abstract

We isolated 12 polymorphic microsatellites from the noxious red-tide-causing alga Chattonella ovata. These loci provide a class of highly variable genetic markers, as the number of alleles ranged from four to 12, and the observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.238 to 0.850 and from 0.310 to 0.889, respectively. These loci are useful for revealing the genetic structure of and gene flow among C. ovata populations.
