Abstract

Two independent broiler chicken populations were genotyped with microsatellite markers to determine genetic polymorphisms within and among broiler populations. Birds were genotyped with primers from the US Poultry Genome Mapping Kits 1 and 2. The 59 primer sets selected for this study provided wide genomic coverage. All 59 primer sets amplified a polymerase chain reaction product in Population L, whereas 57 primer sets produced a product in Population C. The average allele number per line per microsatellite was 2.8 and 2.9 for Populations L and C, respectively. Considering the 57 primer pairs generating product in both lines, 72.3% of the total alleles were unique to one or the other population. This study illustrates the high polymorphism level in broiler populations of microsatellites amplified from primers developed from Red Jungle Fowl or White Leghorn sequences.
