  To detect the genetic lineage of four ubiquitous port-city (Haimen) chicken populations in China, a genetic study involving two-marker types viz: random and microsatellite markers were used with the genomic DNAs isolated from the chicken populations. A total of two hundred and forty genomic DNAs with 60 samples from each of Rugao, Jiangchun, Wan-Nan and Cshiqishi populations were used. All samples were subjected to both 45 and 35 cycles of amplifications with five random and fifteen microsatellite markers in polymerase chain reactions (PCRs), respectively. Average band-sharing coefficient (BSC) and the Nei standard genetic distances (Dij) obtained using the data generated by the random markers with the genomic DNAs. Using the microsatellite markers with the same set of genomic DNAs, allele frequencies were obtained through direct gene counting approach. The generated allele frequencies were used to compute the (Dij) between populations. With the random markers, the (Dij) obtained ranged from 0.0083 (Jiangchun and Cshiqishi) to 0.2789 (Rugao and Wan-Nan); while that of microsatellite markers ranged from 0.2360 (Rugao and Jiangchun) to 0.5072 (Rugao and Cshiqishi), respectively. Phylogenetic trees developed using both standard (Dij`s) revealed significant variations in the level of divergence between populations. Phylogenetic linkage of these chicken populations based on the random markers showed Jiangchun and Cshiqishi to be well related, whereas Rugao and Wan-Nan distantly related. For the microsatellite markers, Rugao and Jiangchun appeared very close, while Rugao and Cshiqishi populations appeared remote between the populations. The results emanated from the application of these markers with these chicken populations suggests that Jiangchun and Cshiqishi and or Rugao and Jiangchun are likely to have originated from the same source and Wan-Nan intermediate in both cases of the phylogeny trees, might had been developed through crossbreeding activities of these populations.

  In order to develop rapid and reliable SCAR markers linked to the QTL, to get better understood of orgin of New Yangzhou chickens, two bands of OPAY02 type marker have been cloned, sequenced and two pairs of primer were designed according to the DNA sequence of two bands of OPAY02 to amplify the SCAR-markers on 86 individuals randomly selected from New Yangzhou chickens. The results of comparing the two bands DNA sequence with red jungle fowl genomic DNA database showed that the large molecular size band is located on the 3rd chromosome, the sequence identities were 98% and 8 SNPs mutations were detected, they were at 195 (T→G), 316 (A→T), 538 (G→ A), 731 (T→A), 1147 (G→A), 1329 (T→C), 1927 (C→ T) and 2081 (C→T). On the other hand, the small molecular size band can`t be found in red jungle chicken genomic DNA database, speculated that the source of New Yangzhou Chickens may originate from not only red jungle fowl, but also other jungle fowls. SCAR -markers confirmed that the two bands of OPAY02 type marker can be applied to genetic analyses because of its stability and reliability. Genotype equilibrium test showed that New Yangzhou chickens are in equilibrium on the two bands loci, two bands of OPAY02 type marker selection will be in favor of New Yangzhou chickens body weight breeding.

  Canonical correlation analysis of three character sets including 23 variables of Jinghai yellow chicken was performed. Strong significant correlations were obtained between body weight and body measurement characters (0.9153), body weight and carcass characteristics (0.9618) and body measurement and carcass characteristics (0.9618). The coefficients represented 98.46, 98.96 and 92.82% of the total correlation between the two character sets, respectively. Canonical correlation analysis had been able to identify the relevant variables of the three character sets of Jinghai yellow chicken and it would be an appropriate method of analysis to find optimally correlated patterns of chicken body weight, body measurement and carcass characters.
