Phylogenetic relationships among and genetic variability within 13 Chinese indigenous goat breeds and Boer goat were analyzed using cytochrome b gene sequences. There were 44 variable sites found in a 642 bp sequence, and 46 Cyt b haplotypes were subsequently defined. The phylogeny analysis of haplotypes in combination with goat Cyt b sequences from GenBank shows that Chinese goats are obviously separated from wild goats and might come from Capra aegagrus. Further analysis indicated that… CONTINUE READING
