Abstract

We analyze a total of 326 Criollo cattle from the regions of Puno, Ayacucho and Junín in order to investigate the genetic variability of these populations. Five DNA microsatellites markers (DNA-SSR) were used (BM1818, BM1824, ETH225, ILSTS005 and ILSTS006). We identified 27 alleles with these microsatellites markers. The total expected heterocigocity was 0.7; it is also reported the results of the allele frequencies analysis and genetic differentiation.
