Genetic Diversity and Relationship Between Genetic Distance and Geographical Distance of 6 Apis Cerana Cerana Populations in China

Yin Ling, Ji Ting, Liu Min, Bao Wen-Bin and Chen Guo-Hong    

Abstract: Genetic diversity and the relationship between genetic distance and geographical distance of 6 Apis cerana cerana populations in China were evaluated with 11 microstaellite loci, the results showed that the number of alleles per locus ranged from 7-21, the average expected heterozygosity and PIC of all loci were 0.7339 and 0.7082, respectively. Average number of alleles/locus was ranged from 2.3636 in Guangxi bee and Jiling bee to 6.4545 in Zhejiang bee. The overall expected heterozygosity of 6 Apis cerana cerana populations was 0.7339±0.0344, all populations showed relative large heterozygosity. In the whole population, the average of genetic differentiation among population was 32.4% (p<0.001). The geographical elements may own to the close relationship for particular population pairs, however, the equation FST/(1-FST) = -1.5904 + 1.0604 ln (d) and the result from Mantel’s test (p = 0.130) did not provide enough support for a significant correlation between the genetic and geographical pair wise distances.
