sheep genetic diversity in bhutan using microsatellite markers.genotype data from eight microsatellite markers were used to assess genetic diversity and relationships among five indigenous bhutanese sheep populations, sakten, jakar, sarpang, sipsu and tsirang. estimates of mean observed and expected heterozygosities, mean number of alleles per locus/population were obtained. the highest observed heterozygosities were found in jakar (0.657) and sakten (0.647), while the lowest one was found in tsirang (0.539). genetic distances, pairwise proportion of differ ...201020438493
