Molecular genetic technologies have changed the pace and dimension of genetic analysis of livestock species. DNA based polymorphisms are being used for marker assisted selection strategies, parentage testing, species identification, breed characterization and population genetic studies, The advent of RAPD (Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA) by Williams et al. (1990), provided new tool for the molecular geneticist. Amount of polymorphism observed with RAPD is comparable to that of Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) and microsatelite techniques and possibility of converting an RAPD marker of interest into a single locus PCR marker - SCAR (sequence characterized amplified region) have made HAPD a promising technique.
