Molecular characterization of the Sicilian goat populations

Risultato della ricerca: Book

Abstract

The Sicilian goats are characterized by a strong population admixturestructure, caused by geographical location of the farms, influences ofnatural mating and traditional breeding systems where flock represents animportant breeding unit. Nowadays, several local populations are reared inSicily, some of which do not have a recognized defined genetic structure,having taken origin from several crosses between animals of differentbreeds/populations sharing the same environment. The aim of this workwas to characterize the Sicilian autochthonous goat populations usingmicrosatellite markers and genetic polymorphisms of casein genes
