Due to human activity and a reduction in the size and quality of wetland habitats, populations of the Eastern sarus crane (Grus antigone sharpii) have declined dramatically across their range in Southeast Asia. Conservation efforts in Thailand have focused on reintroduction of the founders harboring the highest genetic diversity. One of the most important requirements to ensure the persistence of the reintroduced populations is a balanced sex ratio. In this study we tested three simple PCR… 

The status of botanical exploration and plant conservation in Cambodia

Anlung Pring is one of three areas dedicated to eastern sarus crane Antigone antigone sharpii conservation during the non-breeding season in Cambodia. Because the identity and availability of major

Short Communication: A new primer set in CHD1 gene for bird sex identification

A new pair of primer targeting a section of the CHD1 gene that can be amplified in non-ratite birds is designed, the name of a new primer is In-Sex F/In-Sex R and it has successfully amplified the sex of multiple species on orders Galliformes, Passeriforms, Accipitriformes and Strigiformes.

Perbandingan Metode Isolasi DNA sebagai Templat PCR untuk Identifikasi Jenis Kelamin Cerek Jawa (Charadriius javanicus) secara Molekuler Menggunakan Primer 2550F/2718R

In molecular studies, extraction can be time consuming and costly (especially in large scale studies), therefore some studies examine the success rate of amplification using alternative DNA isolation




A minimum-length network for the Sarus Crane haplotypes reveals at least one instance of direct ancestry and one hard polytomy, but shows no phylogeographic partitioning of haplotypes among subspecies and Estimated sequence divergence times, neutral coalescent imes, and data on the Quaternary geology of Australasia suggest hat Sarus Cranes colonized Australia during the late Pleistocene.

Sex Identification by Alternative Polymerase Chain Reaction Methods in Falconiformes

It is shown that sex identification by an alternative PCR approach based on intronic length variation and on differences in sequences between CHD1W andCHD1Z proved applicable to and useful for Falconiformes.

Identification of the sex of a wide range of Carinatae birds by PCR using primer sets selected from chicken EE0.6 and its related sequences.

A 0.6 kb EcoRI fragment, cloned from the W chromosome of chickens, is a nonrepetitive sequence and contains an exonlike sequence, ET15, which is likely a part of a pseudogene, and the sex of 36 species belonging to 16 different orders of Carinatae could be determined clearly by PCR.

Conditions for rapid sex determination in 47 avian species by PCR of genomic DNA from blood, shell-membrane blood vessels, and feathers

Because this simple technique uses Chelex, a rapid gDNA isolation protocol, and sets of PCR primers independent of restriction enzyme digestion, birds can be accurately sexed within 5 hr of sample collection.

The identification of sex in the starling Sturnus vulgaris using a molecular DNA technique

A procedure for amplifying a W‐linked DNA marker in the starling (Sturnus vulgaris) by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) so allowing the diagnosis of sex in this species is described, allowing even the smallest chicks to be sexed from a blood sample.

A simple and universal method for molecular sexing of non-ratite birds

A universal method for molecular sexing of non-ratite birds which is based on the detection of a constant size difference between CHD1W andCHD1Z introns is described, successfully sexing 47 of the species.

A critique of avian CHD-based molecular sexing protocols illustrated by a Z-chromosome polymorphism detected in auklets

The potential difficulties caused by a polymorphism such as that identified in auklets are discussed and the merits of alternative CHD -based sexing protocols and primers are discussed.

Molecular techniques for sex identification in birds

This paper reviews the sexing techniques, highlighting their advantages and drawbacks and concludes that the amplification of primers related to the CHD gene is the most rapid, cheap and reliable technique of almost universal application.

Molecular characterization and cytological mapping of a non-repetitive DNA sequence region from the W chromosome of chicken and its use as a universal probe for sexing Carinatae birds

A non-repetitive genomic DNA region of about 25 kb was cloned from the W chromosome of chicken using a genomic library prepared from a single W chromosome of the chicken. This region was mapped by
