Abstract

Background: Understanding the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms of speciation genes in sexually reproducing organisms would provide important insights into mammalian reproduction and fitness. PRDM9, a widely known speciation gene, has recently gained attention for its important role in meiotic...

Abstract

Genetic linkage maps provide excellent tools for detecting quantitative trait loci (QTL) and understanding genome organization and evolution. By taking advantage of a large number of microsatellite markers isolated from the genome of the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis in our previous study, ...

Abstract

Zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.), belonging to the genus Zoysia in the subfamily Chloridoideae, is widely used in domestic lawns, sports fields and as forage. We constructed high-density genetic maps of Zoysia japonica using a restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (RAD-Seq) approach and an F1 mapping ...

Abstract

Background: Understanding the genetic mechanisms that underlie meat quality traits is essential to improve pork quality. To date, most quantitative trait loci (QTL) analyses have been performed on F2 crosses between outbred pig strains and have led to the identification of numerous QTL. However,...

Abstract

The interspersed repeat content of mammalian genomes has been best characterized in human, mouse and cow. In this study, we carried out de novo identification of repeated elements in the equine genome and identified previously unknown elements present at low copy number. The equine genome contains...

Abstract

Ovis aries chromosome one (OAR1) is the largest submetacentric chromosome in the sheep genome and is homologous to regions on human chromosomes 1, 2, 3 and 21. Using the USUoRH5000 ovine whole-genome radiation hybrid (RH) panel, we have constructed a RH map of OAR1 comprising 102 framework and 75...

Abstract

Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) causes decreased reproductive performance in breeding animals and increased respiratory problems in growing animals, which result in significant economic losses in the swine industry. Vaccination has generally not been effective in the prevention ...

Abstract

Haldane's rule states that species hybrids of the XY sex are preferentially sterile or inviable. In all taxa known to obey this rule, the Y is inert and X-linked genes show full expression in XY individuals. Until recently, all theories of Haldane's rule depended on this hemizygosity. A test of...

Abstract

This book was written primarily for students in schools who are heading towards careers in biological science or technology; but it will interest a wider readership, especially among those who are concerned with the history of science.
Professor Crew's approach to his subject is historical and he...
