Data from: Microsatellite evidence for high frequency of multiple paternity in the marine gastropod Rapana venosa

Dongxiu Xue, Tao Zhang, Liu Jin-Xian & Jin-Xian Liu
Background: Inferring of parentage in natural populations is important in understanding the mating systems of a species, which have great effects on its genetic structure and evolution. Muricidae, a large group (approximately 1,600 species) of marine gastropods, are poorly investigated in patterns of multiple paternity and sperm competition based on molecular techniques. The veined Rapa whelk, Rapana venosa, a commercially important muricid species with internal fertilization, is an ideal species to study the occurrence and...
