We have characterized the endangered Punjab urial via its interferon alpha-A gene. DNA extraction was done from blood, followed by PCR and sequencing using a 3130xl genetic analyzer. Single nucleotide polymorphism and phylogenetic analyses were performed with BioEdit 18.104.22.168 and MEGA 6.1. The highly polymorphic nature revealed will lead to identifying molecular markers for breeding purposes.
