Characterization of the poultry flocks with molecular genetic markers for population identification and traceability

Domestic animal breeds as genetic resources are part of the Earth’s biological diversity, which means they play an important role in preserving the biological balance in human food resources. Therefore, preserving them is a global issue for the whole mankind. In animal husbandry (and plant breeding) the number of breeds is continually decreasing, and hence, it is assumed that the variability is declining. Nowadays, few specialized poultry populations provide the basis of commercial breeding programs. This limits the possibilities of breed elevation.
