Abstract

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) discovery and genotyping were performed for the finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides). About 202 comparative anchor tagged sequence primers derived from genomes of human, mouse and some other mammals were used to screen the finless porpoise population. Of the 51 SNPs discovered, 25 were further characterized with ideal genotyping primers and using fragment length discrepant allele specific PCR assay. This is the first report of SNP loci for the finless porpoise, which is helpful to provide some novel molecular markers and new genetic information relevant to the conservation and management of this endangered species.
