Abstract: The detailed genetic diversity of Assam Local pig population was studied through microsatellite markers. Most of the studied loci were polymorphic in nature and a total of 163 alleles were observed across all the loci. The range of alleles was found to be from 2 to 11 with a mean of 6.52±2.311. The frequency distribution of microsatellite alleles in the population was from 0.0208 to 0.9091. The overall mean of observed and expected heterozygosities were 0.50±0.272 and 0.71±0.182, respectively. The polymorphism information content (PIC) was 0.67±0.184 and Shannon’s information index (I) was sufficiently high with a mean of 1.53. The within population inbreeding estimate (FIS) value (0.273) indicated shortfall of heterozygosity in the population. The bottleneck analysis revealed that population had not undergone any recent reduction.
