The molecular markers provide unique genetic properties and methodological advantages that make them more useful and amenable for genetic analysis. The possible applications of molecular markers in poultry breeding have been focused with reference to conventional and transgenic breeding strategies. In general, DNA sequencing is the direct approach to reveal such DNA polymorphism. Currently, more potential and less laborious techniques to uncover new types of molecular markers are newly being introduced. Currently, DNA chip technology is usually carried out during (SNPs) Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms investigations.
