Mongolian horse is a kind of important breed resource of local horses in our country. It has a lot of advantages such as powerful endurance, rough feeding resistance, and strong disease resistance. These advantages have become driving force for in-depth study on Mongolian horse. Genetic diversity can reflect all the genetic information of a species or a vari-ety, namely, it reflects the richness of genetic diversity and confirms the degree of uniqueness of genetic resources through genetic markers. This paper introduces the progress in the study on genetic diversity of Mongolian horse in many aspects such as in cell, biochemical and molecular level, and highlights the various hot gene types and their polymorphisms.
