Abstract

These are genotype calls for Gulf of Maine samples associated with the paper 'Species identification based on a semi-diagnostic marker: evaluation of a simple conchological test for distinguishing blue mussels Mytilus edulis L. and M. trossulus Gould'.

Methods

These are the multilocus snp genotypes for Gulf of Maine mussels in vcf and structure file formats; stacks library reference files
