Phylogenetic Analysis of Capra hircus Commonly Found Goat Breeds of Pakistan using DNA Barcode

  title={Phylogenetic Analysis of Capra hircus Commonly Found Goat Breeds of Pakistan using DNA Barcode},
  author={Asif Ali and Attika Rehman and K. William},
Cytochrome c oxidase subunit I or COI in the mitochondrial genome (DNA Barcode) of goats was used to identify and differentiate two common breeds (beetal and berberi) and crossbreeds sampled in Punjab, Pakistan. This is the first study on the molecular taxonomy of the goat breeds of Pakistan. Sequencing of DNA barcode of the beetal goat showed a 99% similarity to Capra hircus isolate LS16 cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) gene. Beriberi goats showed a 99% similarity to Capra hircus breed… Expand

Genetic characterization and phylogenetic study of Lakor goat from Southwest Maluku Regency based on mitochondrial COI gene
The Lakor goat population has a high level of inbreeding depression as a result of geographical isolation, which supports the formation of a monophyletic group with different genetic characteristics, and does not allow the introduction of males from other breeds. Expand
Assessing Inter and Intra Molecular Genetic Variation of Litter Size in Three Egyptian Goat Breeds Using COI and F-AFLP Markers
Most of the livestock breeds in Egypt lack molecular characterization required for establishing adequate utilization of genetic variation in developing livestock breeding programs. Cytochrome oxidaseExpand
DNA Barcoding and Molecular Phylogeny
Classical way of practicing taxonomy is in endangered race in the era of genomics. In recent years, taxonomy became fashionable owing to the revolutionary approaches in taxonomy called DNA barcoding.Expand


Use of DNA barcodes to identify flowering plants.
Comparison of the total plastid genomes of tobacco and deadly nightshade enhanced with trials on widely divergent angiosperm taxa suggest that the sequences in this pair of loci have the potential to discriminate among the largest number of plant species for barcoding purposes. Expand
DNA barcoding of Neotropical bats: species identification and discovery within Guyana
The present study validates the effectiveness of barcoding for the identification of regional bat assemblages, even highly diverse tropical faunas. Expand
Co-amplification and sequencing of a cytochrome b fragment affecting the identification of cattle in PCR-RFLP food authentication studies
The results presented in this work imply that food authentication studies by PCR-RFLP analysis may be complicated in the case of cattle by the co-amplification of two different cytb fragments. Expand
Single mitochondrial gene barcodes reliably identify sister-species in diverse clades of birds
Closely related sister species of birds can be identified reliably by barcodes of fixed diagnostic substitutions in COI sequences, verifying coalescent-based statistical tests of reciprocal monophyly for taxonomic distinctiveness and identifying recently separated lineages that represent putative species.

Barcoding animal life: cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 divergences among closely related species
It is indicated that sequence divergences at COI regularly enable the discrimination of closely allied species in all animal phyla except the Cnidaria and constraints on intraspecific mitochondrial DNA divergence arising through selective sweeps mediated via interactions with the nuclear genome.

DNA barcoding Australia's fish species
It is concluded that cox1 sequencing, or ‘barcoding’, can be used to identify fish species. Expand
Deciphering amphibian diversity through DNA barcoding: chances and challenges
It is suggested that a number of mitochondrial and nuclear genes may be used as DNA barcoding markers to complement cox1, and this taxon was able to correctly identify species including disparate geographic variants. Expand
DNA barcoding is no substitute for taxonomy
DNA barcoding may seem progressive to those who use the word 'dusty' whenever the subject of taxonomy arises, but the work of taxonomists provides knowledge of the organism, not a few possibly unique nucleotides. Expand
Biological Identifications Through DNA Barcodes
It was established previously that the mitochondrial gene cytochrome c oxidase I can serve as the core of a global bioidentification system for animals and a new tools were developed recently to be complementary markers for (COI) DNA barcoding. Expand
Pakistan is endowed with diverse livestock genetic resources. In fact it is postulated that one of the centres of animal domestication lay in this part of the world. Pakistan has a large livestockExpand
