Microsatellite loci (16) were investigated for studying the genetic polymorphism in Bikaneri camels. Out of these 13 loci were found polymorphic. The number of alleles ranged from 2 to 7. The expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.289 to 0.815. The polymorphic information content ranged from 0.267 to 0.789. The results indicated existence of enough genetic variation among dromedary individuals and the potential use of microsatellite markers for further genetic diversity analyzes and production enhancement
