 en Genetic Markers from Biomphalaria tenagophila (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Planorbidae) Obtained by the Double Stringency Polymerase Chain Reaction Technique
Roseli Tuan & Paula Cristina Bortolato


Biomphalaria tenagophila, one of the intermediate hosts of the trematoda Schistosoma mansoni, is a simultaneous hermafrodite snail species. In order to analyse the genetic structure of these populations, we performed a double-stringency PCR technique to obtain genetic markers with microsatellites and arbitrary primers in a single reaction.
