Abstract

In order to study the effect of the season on the evolution of ewes' body weight (W) and body condition score (BCS) during their breeding cycle, 22 Ouled Djellal ewes, reared in an extensive system, have been managed in an accelerated lambing rate (3 lambing in 2 years). The combined weighing and...

Abstract

This special issue contain five broad topics which focus on deleterious mutations in the context of domestication; genomics of ancient samples and its important contribution to understanding domestication; introgression between wild and domestic populations; explores the demographic processes in...

Abstract

The first deep sequencing method was announced in 2005. Due to an increasing number of sequencing data and a reduction in the costs of each sequencing dataset, this innovative technique was soon applied to genetic investigations of viral genome diversity in various viruses, particularly RNA...

Abstract

Considerable effort has been devoted to understanding the negative effects of reduced PO2 on cardiac function. Much less is known about the impacts of elevated PO2 (hyperoxia) on cardiac performance and energetics, especially in fishes. The fish heart is of particular interest because cardiac...

Abstract

The amh, a member of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) family, is known to play a critical role in vertebrate male sex differentiation, with its paralogue/s evolving to determine sex in few heterogametic (XX/XY) teleosts. However, it remains relatively unexplored in the reproductively unique...

Abstract

Large-scale phylogenetic studies of animal cognition have revealed robust links between absolute brain volume and species differences in executive function. However, past comparative samples have been composed largely of primates, which are characterized by evolutionarily derived neural scaling...

Abstract

Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) is among the most iconic and economically important fish species and was the first member of Salmonidae to have a high-quality reference genome assembly published. Advances in genomics have become increasingly central to the genetic improvement of farmed Atlantic...

Abstract

After domestication 11 000 years ago in Asia Minor, the goat followed human migration to Europe and Asia. It was then introduced in Africa and is now raised all over the world. In this study, we exploited a dataset composed of 54 000 SNPs (Illumina goat DNA chip) to analyze the genetic diversity of ...

Abstract

Jiangxi province in China is rich in indigenous chicken breeds, which have diverse phenotypes and represent a valuable genetic resource for further genetic improvement of modern breeds. Here, we conducted a series of analyses to reveal genetic diversity, phylogenetic relationships and population...

Abstract

Gene mutations influencing melanocytes also impact on physiological and behavioural functions. In this study, we investigated their association with four different coat colours in the Pura Raza Español (PRE) horse using morphological traits and molecular datasets. Four different subpopulations were ...
