Evaluation of genetic variability and genetic distances between eight chicken lines using microsatellite markers.

Abstract

The genetic variability and divergence of eight chicken lines were evaluated using nine microsatellite markers. The chicken lines included three White Leghorn hybrids, three Finnish Landrace lines, a Rhode Island Red line, and a broiler hybrid line. All the microsatellite loci were found to be polymorphic, the number of alleles varying from 4 to 13 per… (More)
