Action 5 – Assessment of consanguinity and genetic diversity in populations and calculation of inbreeding.
The genotypes obtained in Action 2 will be analyzed with the aid of specific softwares (Molkin, Structure) capable of evaluating average inbreeding coefficient, genetic variability, contribution of each breed to the total genetic variation and risk of extinction of the nucleus populations. Furthermore, the genetic distance and the population structure will be estimated.
Molecular kinship will be assessed with different statistics, and the results will be compared. Any potential discrepancy in the obtained results will be matter of investigation .
The partner UniTO is in charge of Action 5 in collaboration with partners UniPG and UniPD.
