Suresh E, Reddy AK, Krishna G, Chaudhari A, Sharma R, Babu PG., Genetic diversity of hatchery stocks of Macrobrachiumrosenbergii assessed by microsatellite DNA, Onl J Bioinform., 12(2):323-328, 2011. Five microsatellite DNA loci were used to assess the genetic diversity from two hatchery stocks of freshwater prawn. Samples were collected from two private hatcheries. Both stocks exhibited significant variation across all five microsatellite loci. The average number of alleles per locus was 6.4 and average expected heterozygosity at all loci ranged from 0.81 to 0.82. FST per locus ranged from 0.03 to 0.11 and the average FST value of 0.08 indicated that around 8 % of the total genetic variation was explained by population differences, with the remaining 92 % corresponding to differences among individuals within population. Both the hatchery stocks deviated significantly from Hardy-Weinberg expectations at all the microsatellite loci.
