Abstract: Genetic Structure of Guilan buffalo population, in the South and South western area of Caspian Sea in Iran, was characterized, using 14 microsatellite markers (CSSM019, CSSM029, CSSM033, CSSM038, CSSM041, CSSM043, CSSM047, CSRM060, CSSM061, CSSM062, CSSM070, BMC1013, BRN and ETH003). The average of observed and effective number of alleles across all loci was found to be 4.14 and 3.17, respectively. CSSM062 was the most polymorphic markers according to its effective number of alleles (4.69), expected heterozygosity (0.79) and Polymorphism information content (0.75). However, CSSM029 showed the lowest effective number of alleles (1.20), expected heterozygosity (0.50) and Polymorphism information content (0.37). Results showed that these markers were suitable in population genetics researches. The mean of observed and expected heterozygosity, Polymorphism information content and Shannon information index were equal to 0.90, 0.67, 0.61 and 1.22, respectively across all loci in the population. It was concluded that a high degree of genetic diversity exist in the Guilan buffalo populations.
