Title : Detection of quantitative loci correlation with growth traites in local quail using pcr- rflp technique.

Abstract:

The objective of this study was to investigate the polymorphisms of three loci (SEMA3E, GH and TLX) that related with growth traits in local quail. A total of 720 birds (males and females) from three lines (desert, brown and white) were used. The results revealed that the effects of the line were significant on bird body weight and carcass weight and dressing percentage at 180 days at age. The Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) value overall birds for body weight was ranged from -9.2173 to 10.0117, these results showed there were significant differences among high and low BLUP value groups in three quail lines under study. The PCR-RFLP results overall three lines showed that there were three, three and two alleles for SEMA3E, TLX and GH locus, respectively. This alleles gives twelve differences genotypes, the desert male quail with ACABAA genotype and desert female quail with AAABAA genotype (high group) for three loci under study give significantly higher body and carcass weight compared with another groups. In conclusion results showed that there are agreements between BLUP values with PCR-RFLP results to select best birds and the selection process with molecular technique can play a major positive and rapid role to improve and increase growth traits in these lines of local quail in Iraqi Kurdistan region.

Audience Takeaway:

  • They can apply the molecular biology techniques in further research studies in poultry breeding.
  • Audience will expand their knowledge about relation among three loci (SEMA3E, GH and TLX) with growth traits in local quail.
  • They can use these techniques (BLUP+ molecular biology) to improve quail in their areas.
  • Using The Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) values for quail's weight could select the individual regarded as the next generation's parents for improving growth traits.
  • The results showed that there are agreements between BLUP values with PCR-RFLP results to select best birds and the selection process with molecular technique can play a major positive and rapid role to improve and increase growth traits in these lines of local quail.

Dr. lajan salahaldin ahmed, working as Associate Professor at College of Agricultural Engineering Sciences/ Animal Resources Department. I got my master degree in 2008 and PhD degree in 2020 of poultry breeding and genetic. I have 15 years’ experiences in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students, including poultry breeding, Biostatistics, Experimental Design, Genetics, Animal Breeding and Molecular Genetics. During the academic years 2014-2015 I was a head of a committee for a local chicken breeding project. From 2015- until now I am a head of a committee for a local quail breeding project at Grdarasha Station which belongs to the department of Animal Resources, College of Agriculture Engineering Science, Salahaddin University-Erbil
