Y chromosome haplotype analysis in purebred dogs


In order to evaluate the genetic structure of purebred dogs, six Y chromosome microsatellite markers were used to analyze DNA samples from 824 unrelated dogs from 50 recognized breeds. A relatively small number of haplotypes (67) were identified in this large sample set due to extensive sharing of haplotypes between breeds and low haplotype diversity within… (More)
