This study was determined the efficiency of microsatellite markers for conservation plans and breeding strategies in Caspian horse population.
Recently, new advanced high-throughput sequencing technology as a novel tool has opened the way to study of genomic variants and functional information stored within farm animals.
Since admixture can affect patterns of genetic diversity, we estimated the contribution of three Middle Eastern horse breeds (Arab, Akhal Teke, Caspian) to all other breeds in our dataset.
This study indicated the existence of substantial genetic structure and diversity in the Caspian horse using microsatellites.
A new D blood group phenogroup consisting of the specificities adeo was observed in a stallion family of Caspian ponies from Iran. An additional six undescribed genetic variants were seen in a total of 82 […]
Measures of genetic variation were near the average for domestic breeds with the Iranian sample slightly more variable. Caspian ponies had highest genetic similarity with other Arab type breeds and the two samples were more […]
