Short summary
Sheep farming in Iran can be a great source of income for marginal and landless farmers. Animal genetic diversity is required to facilitate rapid adaptation to changing breeding objectives. Hence, the objective of this research was to measure the genetic polymorphism of five microsatellite markers in 14 sheep types in Iran. The high degree of variability demonstrated within these sheep implies that these populations are rich reservoirs of genetic diversity that must be preserved.
