Genetic Diversity of 10 Indigenous Pig Breeds in China by Using Microsatellite Markers
X. Wang, H. H. Cao, S. M. Geng, H. B. Li
Abstract
The genetic diversities of 10 Chinese pig populations were analyzed by using microsatellite DNA polymorphisms. The results showed that the mean heterozygosities of the 10 populations were between 0.4561 and 0.6446, the mean polymorphism information contents were 0.4241-0.6184 and the mean effective number of alleles were 2.4295-3.7573. These indicated that the genetic diversity of local Chinese pigs was high. The clustering of the 10 populations was nearly inaccordance with their geographical distributions.
