Using microsatellites as markers to explore genetic variation in Ceratodon purpureus
Entry ID: ASAC_2542

Abstract: Sampling records for Project 2542 Moss sampling in the Windmill Islands and the Vestfold Hills during 2005 for genetic analysis. Samples are stored frozen at the University of Wollongong and will be analysed using microsatellites.

Collections of the mosses Ceratodon purpureus and Grimmia antarctici from the Windmill islands region and the Vestfold Hills. Sites include Clark Peninsula, Antarctic ... View entire text
