Abstract:

Random amplified polymorphic DNA- Polymerase chain reaction (RAPD-PCR) was employed to assess the genetic variability and phylogenetic relation among fifteen breed of Gangatiri animals Viz. fourteen animals (cow no.288, 348, 394, 365, 313, 364, 293, 319, 283, 208, 306, 322, 476, 478) are both sexes and one bull were selected randomly. The DNA samples were isolated from a total of fifteen animals from Gangatiri cows and three random primers were selected. The genetic distance was found higher between cow no. 288 and 476 (D = 0.82697) and lower (D = 0.17647) between cow no 478 and 476. The phylogenetic tree shows that cow no. 288 and 348 are closer, whereas cow no. 208 and 364 are distant to each other. The level of diversity as evident in these mutants can be harnessed in breeding for better varieties as the divergent genotypes are expected to result in high heterosis. The unique allele can be harnessed for genotype identity.
