DNA fingerprints generated by R.18.1 DNA probe in two stocks of chickens: Green Legged Patridgenous (GLP) and Rhode Island Red (RIR)
Languages of publication
Hybridization of a multi locus DNA probe, R 18.1, to genomic DNA from poultry showed a highly polymorphic fingerprint pattern. The detected DNA fingerprints are individually specific and differ between Green Legged Patridgenous (GLP) and Rhode Island Red (RIR) stock of chickens. The average numbers of detected bands in RIR were 18.68 and in GLP - 15.33, but the average band sharing levels were 0.619 and 0.431, respectively. The level of polymorphism may be connected possibly with a higher level of inbreeding in the examined stock of chicken.
