Identification of hybrids and new lines of broiler fowls using DNA fingerprints

Ars Veterinaria 13(1): 35-43
Identification of hybrids and new lines of broiler fowls using DNA fingerprints
DNA fingerprints from 13 lines of broilers in Brazil were used to identify and evaluate their genetic relationships. Using 5 lines with a low rate of band sharing, it was possible to identify 3 hybrid lines with a good level of heterosis. Using dendrogram analysis from all lines, it was possible to identify 3 groups of 2 lines with an average level of band sharing of >0.73, and in 2 other groups, the average band sharing was above 0.54.
