In this study, genotyping was executed by using 13 microsatellite markers for genetic diversity of 224 Gorals (Saanen(88), Laoshan(67), Toggenburg(32), Alpine(12), Anglonubian(9), Jamnapari(7) and Black Bengal(4)). The number of alleles was observed 4 (INRA005) to 18 (SRCRSP23) each markers. Observed heterozygostiy (Hobs), expected heterozygosity (Hexp) and polymorphism information content (PIC) were observed 0.482 to 0.786, 0.476 to 0.923, and 0.392 to 0.915, respectively. Principal Components Analysis(PCoA) results were similar to the results of FCA. NE-I(on-exclusion probability for identity of two unrelated individuals) was estimated at 2.47×10−15. In conclusion, this study shows the useful data that be utilized as a basic data of Gorals breeding and development.
