Maitra A, Sharma R., In Silico PCR for single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with caprine meat quality, Onl J Bioinform., 22 (1): 18-27, 2021. There is a close relationship between polymorphism in several genes with carcass and meat quality traits of beef cattle. Markers in leptin calcium-activated neutral proteases and calpastatin genotyping panels are used for marker assisted selection for beef quality. We report a PCR for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in a large set of candidate genes associated with meat quality from 7 breeds of 6 goats each from different regions of India. Due to the importance of these polymorphisms, there is a need to develop a simple method for PCRs assay for laboratories without adequate facilities. We report a simple In silico PCR-RFLP assay of meat quality candidate genes in goats.
