This presentation will discuss the genetic analyses conducted on captive populations of the Burmese star tortoise, Geochelone platynota, to assess the represented heterozygosity. The analysis and comparison of these populations will aid in the breeding and reintroduction of this critically endangered species into their native habitat of Myanmar.
