Abstract:

The aim of this study is to evaluate genetic potential in
chicken breeds raised in Vietnam. They include local chicken
breeds (Noi and Tau Vang giving good health and meat quality
traits but they are not intensively studied yet) and a
commercial breed (Cobb 500 giving high growth performance
and meat yield in industrial poultry production system in
the world, including Vietnam). Therefore, candidate genes GH,
GHR, GHSR and insulin related to these traits were
investigated for identifying their single nucleotide
polymorphisms by using PCR-RFLP method across different
populations of chicken. The results provide basic foundation
to continuously study the effects of genetic polymorphisms
in the candidate genes on performance and meat quality
traits of local Vietnamese chickens.
