Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers can be generated using short arbitrary primers to amplify genomic DNA, giving a genotype-specific pattern of bands. RAPD analysis should lead to the saturation of the genome without the requirement of previous genetic information and using few expensive oligonucleiotides. The use of DNA marker technology in poultry as a strains identification has progressed rapidly during the last decade. This review summarizes the use of RAPDs as molecular… CONTINUE READING
