Birds sex determination PCR

Sexing of Birds

A Cheap and Quick Method for DNA-based Sexing of Birds. Primer for Sexing of birds (Griffiths et al 1998): males and females side by side. If it’s a boy, there will be a single band at around 350 bp, if it’s a girl there is the band of 350 bp and an additional one at around 380 bp. This project started in 1998 at the Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Genetics to detect in a few feathers the sex of nightingales. Because the sexes resemble each other, DNA- tests show the difference. If you want to establish this PCR Method in your lab, please contact:
