Abstract

Background: Sheep have developed the ability to store fat in their tails, which is a unique way of reserving energy to survive a harsh environment. However, the mechanism underlying this adaptive trait remains largely unsolved. Results: In the present study, we provide evidence for the genetic...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analyses of foot-and-mouth disease type A viruses in the Middle East during 2015-2016 identified viruses belonging to the A/ASIA/G-VII lineage, which originated in the Indian subcontinent. Changes in a critical antigenic site within capsid viral protein 1 suggest possible evolutionary...

Cover for The origin and evolution of the domestic cat.

This chapter presents the classification of cats based on their lineage, common name and species of cats. A brief history on African wild cats (most likely the ancestors of the domestic cat) was discussed as well as domestication of cats which probably began around 10 000 years ago in a region of...

Abstract

Fish species of the genus Capoeta are known for their special mouth morphology (inferior mouth with the horny edge to the lower jaw), short dorsal fin with seven to nine branched rays, and their tumultuous taxonomic history. The genus Capoeta has had a complex evolutionary history with high...

Abstract

Adaptation and evolution of avian avulavirus 1, or Newcastle disease virus (NDV), has led to tremendous economic losses worldwide. The occurrence of natural recombination and selection pressure has been traced for NDV based on a few recent reports, but a dominant pattern based on genomic...

Abstract

The western honey bee, Apis mellifera, provides critical pollination services to agricultural crops worldwide. However, despite substantial interest and prior investigation, the early evolution and subsequent diversification of this important pollinator remain uncertain. The primary hypotheses...

Abstract

The laboratory rat, widely used in biomedical research, is domesticated from wild brown rat. The origin and genetic mechanism underlying domestication of the laboratory rat remain largely elusive. In the present study, large scale genomes supported a single origin for the laboratory rat, possibly...

Abstract

Significant economic losses in the poultry industries have resulted from H9N2 low pathogenic avian influenza virus infections across North Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The present study investigated the evolutionary dynamics of H9N2 viruses circulating in Korea from 1996 to 2012. Our analysis...

Abstract

Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) belongs to beta group of coronavirus and was first discovered in 2012. MERS-CoV can infect multiple host species and cause severe diseases in human. We conducted a series of phylogenetic and bioinformatic analyses to study the evolution...

Abstract

Recombination is a process that unlinks neighboring loci allowing for independent evolutionary trajectories within genomes of many organisms. If not properly accounted for, recombination can compromise many evolutionary analyses. In addition, when dealing with organisms that are not obligately...
