Molecular systematics of Antarctic mosses
Entry ID: K024_1999_2001_NZ_1

Abstract: Estimating genetic variation is important in understanding a populations potential to track changing environmental conditions and for conservation management. Two molecular techniques, DNA sequencing and microsatellite markers, were used to determine the genetic structure of and relationships amoung moss populations. A phylogenetic analysis of ITS sequence variation was conducted, focusing on the ... View entire text

Quality The moss samples (and the DNAs) that remain are currently stored at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand. The investigator is collaborating with two authors on another molecular systematics papers utilizing these samples. Until this work is completed we will not be able to allow others to access the samples.
