Genetic diversity of Karya (n=117) and Çine Çapari sheep (n=123), which is indigenous breed of Turkey, were investigated by 10 ovine microsatellite markers proposed by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). A total of 105 and 115 were observed in Karya and Çine Çapari sheep breed respectively in this study. A wide range of genetic variability was observed as allele number from 7 (OarCP34) to 14 (DYMS1) for Çine Çapari and 6 (OarCP34) to 14 (OARJMP58) in Karya sheep breed. The estimated observed heterozygosities (Ho) were between 0.450 and 0.950 in Çine Çapari and 0.541 and 0.841 in Karya sheep breed. The highest genetic identity (0.8131) was observed between Karya and Çine Çapari sheep breed. The results obtained in the present study will help to interpret the genetic structure of indigenous Karya and Çine Çapari sheep.
