Abstract

In recent years regions which exhibit many genetic polymorphisms for the DNA of cattle, sheep and goats have been discovered. The aim of this study is to analyse the polymorphism of various microsatellites, which have been previously defined as polymorphism for sheep, and to evaluate the use of the Kivircik sheep population, which is indigenous to Turkey in relationship testing. The results have been evaluated for heterozygosity, power exclusion, matching probability, power discrimination, and paternity index.
