MENDEZ, S. et al. Population genetic parameters of the sheep populations from the Comunidad Autónoma de Cantabria. Arch. zootec. [online]. 2011, vol.60, n.231, pp.421-424. ISSN 1885-4494.

Two sheep populations present in the Cantabria region in the North of Spain and named Guriezo and Blanca de la Peña were genetically characterised, also their origin and relationships with other geographically or culturally connected breeds were studied. A total of 457 individuals belonging to the two groups and to other such as Lacha, Bardhoka, Anogeiano, Gentile di Puglia, Laticauda, Churra Bragancana, Colmenareña, Manchega, Merina, Rubia del Molar and Segureña breeds were genotyped for 21 microsatellite markers. The results allow detecting the influence of the Lacha breed on the Guriezo population, but also the genetic differences of both sheep populations (Guriezo and Blanca de la Peña) from all others ovine breeds studied.

Keywords : Genetic diversity; Microsatellite.
