dc.description.abstractThe genus Thunnus is within the family Scombridae (mackerels and tunas). Both morphological and mitochondrial phylogenetic analyses of this genus have been previously reported.Conflicts, however remain from these studies.Our research is focused on characterizing and utilizing nuclear repetitive DNA sequences as phylogenetic markers to help resolve these conflicts.We have isolated one hypervariable microsatellite locus from Thunnus albacares along with two potential satellite sequences: one from Thunnus alalunga using the Hae III restriction endonuclease and the other from Thunnus albacares using the Apa I restriction enzyme.In addition to characterizing the genome organization of these species, the repetitive sequences have potential phylogenetic utility.
