Relationship between genetic similarity and some productive traits in local chicken strains ..


Bahy Ahmed Ali1*, Mohamed Morsy Mohamed Ahmed1 , Osama Mahmoud Aly2

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique was applied to detect genetic similarity between five local chicken strains that have been selected for eggs and meat production in Egypt. Based on six oligonucleotide primers, the genetic similarity between the egg -producing strains (Anshas, Silver Montazah and Mandarah) ranged from 72.4 to 85.4%. While the genetic similarity between the two chicken strains selected for meat production (Baheij and El-Salam) is 86.9%.
