Dataset: Population genetics of the starfish, Linckia laevigata, in the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean


A study of the population genetics of the starfish Linckia laevigata throughout the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Seven allozyme loci (GPI, ENO, HK, LP, LT-1, LT-2, SOD) were examined. Variations in gene frequencies of allozymes and common proteins, as well as mitochondrial D-loop DNA (the Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism - RFLP) were used to estimate connectivity and dispersal between populations in the region.
