The purpose of this research was to explore genetic variation of black capped white eye Zosterops articapilla using the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b gene. Blood sample was collected via pectoral vein of bird from Panorama markets, Bengkulu city. DNA genome were isolated and purifiated from the blood following Dneasy protocol® Blood and Tissue Kit cat no. 69504 (50), based on Qiagen's Spin-Column Protocol procedure. We used polymerase chain reaction machine for amplification DNA template with specific primer (ZCYTBF and ZCYTBR). The results showed that length of cyt b gene sequence (n=6) was 725 bp and had 717 bp (98.89%) conservative site. The average of intraspecific genetic distance was 0.04, interspecific 0.063, and between Indonesian and overseas (outgroup) was 0.138.
