The study was conducted at College of Veterinary Science, Assam Agricultural University, Khanapara, Assam. In this study, the genomic DNA was isolated and characterized microsatellite loci in crossbred duck (Pati x White Pekin). Ten microsatellites were used to detect polymorphisms in 50 cross bred ducks. A total of 28 nos of alleles were observed and all loci were polymorphic. Per microsatellite locus number of alleles ranged from 2 to 5 with an average of 2.6 ±0.08. The observed and expected heterozygosity of these polymorphic makers ranged from 0.00 to 0.42 with an average number of 0.047 and 0.41 to 0.82 with an average number of 0.57. The Polymorphic markers consist of observed heterozygosity’s of loci were less than 0.50. The polymorphism information content (PIC) of 10 loci ranged from 0.32 to 0.78 with an average of 0.477. Microsatellite markers can be a tool for mitigating the genetic linkage map of the duck as well as comparative mapping with the chicken.
