The genetic diversity of the Red Bororo and White Fulani cattle breeds of Cameroon and Nigeria was assessed with a panel of 32 markers. Estimates for the various indices of genetic diversity, total number of alleles (TNA), mean observed number of alleles (MNA), mean effective number of alleles (MNE), observed heterozygosity (H ob) and expected heterozygosity (H ex), were higher at microsatellite loci than at protein loci. Mean H ex values were above 71% at microsatellite loci in all the breeds… CONTINUE READING
