Short summary
Most gene mtDNA 16S rRNA studies were with aquatic organisms, insects, and a few mammalian species; no reports involved cattle. The objective of this research was to characterize the genetic and phylogenetic diversity among 12 cattle breeds utilizing gene mtDNA 16S rRNA. The base percentages of this gene had a strong bias towards A + T. Only transitions or transversions were detected. The phylogenetic analysis indicated the existence of Bos taurus and Bos indicus ancestry in Chinese cattle.
