Gender identification of species is very important for veterinary, medical and ecological sciences. Because of sexual monomorphism, the sex of 50% of bird species cannot be discriminated based on external features. The Avian DNA Sexing kit is based on the PCR amplification of the Chromo-Helicase DNA genes on W and Z sexual chromosomes. These genes possess different sizes among different species leading to PCR products that vary in size.
