Abstract

Background: The ostrich (Struthio camelus) is the tallest and heaviest living bird. Ostrich meat is considered a healthy red meat, with an annual worldwide production ranging from 12,000 to 15,000 tons. As part of the avian phylogenomics project, we sequenced the ostrich genome for phylogenetic and ...

Cover for Cytogenetics and chromosome maps.

Cattle genome mapping efforts, annotation and evolutionary history analysis are briefly summarized in this chapter. Earlier efforts in cattle genome analysis are discussed, including cattle cytogenetic and somatic cell hybrid mapping and linkage mapping. Advances achieved with the use of radiation...

Abstract

To better understand genomic and chromosomal organization and evolutionary patterns of the U1 snRNA gene in cichlid fish, the gene was cytogenetically mapped and comparatively analyzed in 19 species belonging to several clades of the group. Moreover, the distribution and organization of U1 snRNA...

Abstract

B chromosomes are additional chromosomes widely studied in a diversity of eukaryotic groups, including fungi, plants and animals, but their origin, evolution and possible functions are not clearly understood. To further understand the genomic content and the evolutionary history of B chromosomes,...

Abstract

Background: Comparative genomics is a powerful means of establishing inter-specific relationships between gene function/location and allows insight into genomic rearrangements, conservation and evolutionary phylogeny. The availability of the complete sequence of the chicken genome has initiated the ...

Abstract

Canid species (dogs and foxes) have highly rearranged karyotypes and thus represent a challenge for conventional comparative cytogenetic studies. Among them, the domestic dog is one of the best-mapped species in mammals, constituting an ideal reference genome for comparative genomic study. Here we...

Abstract

Background: A robust bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC)-based physical map is essential for many aspects of genomics research, including an understanding of chromosome evolution, high-resolution genome mapping, marker-assisted breeding, positional cloning of genes, and quantitative trait...

Abstract

Two gene expression surveys across a range of healthy chicken tissues in both adult and embryonic stages are described in this thesis. Focus is given on the mechanisms of regulation of gene transcription and their evolution in the vertebrate genome. This thesis is divided into 7 chapters. The first ...

Abstract

Background - The genomes of salmonids are considered pseudo-tetraploid undergoing reversion to a stable diploid state. Given the genome duplication and extensive biological data available for salmonids, they are excellent model organisms for studying comparative genomics, evolutionary processes,...

Abstract

Genetic control of herbage quality variation was assessed through the use of the molecular marker-based reference genetic map of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.). The restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and genomic DNA-derived simple...
