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 ...

Abstract

Unlike the conservation of sex-determining (SD) modes seen in most mammals and birds, teleost fishes exhibit a wide variety of SD systems and genes. Hence, the study of SD genes and sex chromosome turnover in fish is one of the most interesting topics in evolutionary biology. To increase resolution ...

Abstract

GC content is an important feature of genomic composition, the change of which is closely related to the origin, evolution and functional variation of genes. In the study, the chromosome sequences of cattle, sheep and goat were obtained from the shared database, the GC contents of which were...

Abstract

Gene-centromere (G-C) mapping provides insights into the understanding of the composition, structure, and evolution of vertebrate genomes. Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) is an important aquaculture fish and has been proposed to undertake tetraploidization. In this study, we selected 214 informative...

Abstract

The common carp, Cyprinus carpio, is one of the most important cyprinid species and globally accounts for 10% of freshwater aquaculture production. Here we present a draft genome of domesticated C. carpio (strain Songpu), whose current assembly contains 52,610 protein-coding genes and approximately ...

Abstract

Genome duplications and polyploidization events are thought to have played relevant roles in the early stages of vertebrate evolution, in particular near the time of divergence of the lamprey lineage. Additional genome duplications, specifically in ray-finned fish, may have occurred before the...

AbstractFull Text

Chromosome homology is highly conserved between chicken (Gallus gallus) and Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) and a few chromosome rearrangements occurred in the evolution of these two species. Microsatellite markers are invaluable tools in molecular biology for genome analysis, mapping, search...

Abstract

A genetic linkage map is a powerful research tool for mapping traits of interest and is essential to understanding genome evolution. The aim of this study is to provide an expanded genetic linkage map of common carp to effectively carry out quantitative trait loci analysis and conduct comparative...

Abstract

The role of polyploidy in vertebrate genome evolution remains a fertile area of research and sturgeons (order Acipenseriformes) provide a unique model of genome duplication, with species possessing ∼120, ∼250 or ∼360 chromosomes. Cytogenetic and molecular data have been used to support different...

Abstract

Microsporidia are a group of intracelluar eukaryotic parasites, which can infected almost all animals, including human beings. Till now, no mitochodria but mitosome, a remnant of mitochondria was discovered in this phylum. We present here the mitochondrial pyruvate dehydrogenase E1 (PDH, including...
