- ... The notorious difficulties encountered in species identification of bivalve larvae through morphological characters have given rise to several alternative molecular approaches. In the present work, we propose a method based on PCR-SSCP combined with sequencing of partial 18S rDNA region, in which a large number of larvae can be scored and species identified with minimum sequencing effort. A primer ...
