Nuclear DNA markers (microsatellites) were used to screen the genetic variability in the European bison population of the Bialowieza National Park, Poland. The species is listed as endangered and the Bialowieza population is the largest one worldwide. Many other herds were founded by individuals from Bialowieza. Out of 18 microsatellites, nine were polymorphic, five were found to be homozygous, and four loci did not amplify. No significant deviation from Hardy–Weinberg-equilibrium (HWE) was… CONTINUE READING
