Genetic Diversity among Six Breeds of Indian Goat Using RAPD Markers

Anita Yadav and B.R Yadav

The genetic variations were studied by RAPD technology among six breeds of Indian goats viz. Barbari, Black Bengal, Jamnapari, Marwari, Sirohi and Jhakrana. Out of 40 primers screened using DNA samples of six goat breeds, only 10 primers generated reproducible and distinct RAPD profile. Only distinct and prominent bands were scored. Estimates of between breed’s similarity as indicated by genetic identity and genetic distance ranged between 0.7156 to 0.9506 and 0.0506 to 0.3347, respectively. From dendrogram, it has been observed that Marwari- Sirohi breeds have closer relationship forming a distinct cluster whereas Black Bengal and Barbari were distinctly different from each other.
