- ... Genetic variability in second and third generations of a selective breeding line of Sydney rock oysters (Saccostrea glomerata) was compared with one another and a control group, using 14 allozyme loci. All groups showed a similar and high degree of genetic variability. Overall, the percentage of polymorphic loci (P < 0.99 criterion) was 66.7%, the mean observed (and expected) heterozygosity (+/- S ...
