We report on the identification of unique sequences within the highly variable rDNA ITS regions and more conserved 5.8S regions which provide data for the design of species- and genus-specific probes, and we examine some aspects of the phylogeny of Alexandrium isolates from New Zealand waters.
- intergenic transcribed spacer sequences
- molecular probes
- paralytic shellfish poisoning
