Abstract
Korean Ogol chicken has been registered as a natural monument in Korea and regarded as a valuable genetic resource for the world. As an initial step to investigate the genetic structures of this breed, phylogenetic analysis and calculation of genetic diversities have been performed using mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence variations. A total of 31 Korean Ogol chicken was grouped into four haplotypes and the large haplotype was represented in 12 individuals. The unrooted neighbor-joining tree indicates that the Korean Ogol chicken shared three (A to C) major chicken lineages representing the high genetic variability of this breed. These results can be used for making the breeding and conservation strategies for the Korean Ogol chicken.
