Short summary
The study aimed to genetically characterize Markhoz goat breed using specific microsatellite markers to investigate the genetic diversity within this population and to enhance future breeding strategies and conservation programmes. From findings, despite the decreasing population size, Markhoz goat genetic diversity seems still conserved and the breed seems to have a good level of genetic variability as well as a potential margin of adaptability to environment and future genetic improvement.
