Summary and Implications

The objectives of this study were to compare the performance of different haplotype reconstruction approaches, characterize haplotype diversity and identify recombination hotspots on chromosomes 5 and 15 in layer chicken. BEAGLE, DAGPHASE, and fastPHASE software recognized fewer haplotypes than two other methods. In total, 10 and 2 recombination hotspots were identified on chromosomes 5 and 15, respectively. Further study is needed to confirm these regions with high recombination rate and high haplotype diversity.
