Abstract

The purpose of this study is to understand the genetic variation of parainfluenza virus 5 (PIV5) and to elucidate its of genome and genetic evolution charactertion. Vero cells were inoculated with sample suspect infected PIV5 of a tiger from a zoo in Guangdong Province. The isolated strain was...

Abstract

Despite recent progress in vaccination options, Newcastle disease virus (NDV) stands a severe global epidemic and economic burden. It is difficult to control NDV with vaccination alone due to its evolving genetic variability; therefore, an effective therapeutic must target to resist its replication ...

Abstract

Equine arteritis virus (EAV) is the causative agent of equine viral arteritis (EVA), a reproductive and respiratory disease of horses. Following natural infection, 10 to 70% of infected stallions can become carriers of EAV and continue to shed virus in the semen. In this study, sequential viruses...

Abstract

To investigate the genetic diversity and phyletic evolution and understand the maternal origin of Dagu chicken, Dagu chickens were used as material, by PCR amplification and sequencing technique, complete mtDNA D-loop sequences of Dagu chickens were analyzed with the 19 red jungle fowl sequences in ...

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

Identifying the signals of artificial selection can contribute to further shaping economically important traits. Here, a chicken 600k SNP-array was employed to detect the signals of artificial selection using 331 individuals from 9 breeds, including Jingfen (JF), Jinghong (JH), Araucanas (AR),...

Abstract

A field canine parvovirus (CPV) strain, CPV-SH14, was previously isolated from an outbreak of severe gastroenteritis in Shanghai in 2014. The complete genome of CPV-SH14 was determined by using PCR with modified primers. When compared to other CPV-2 strains, several insertions, deletions, and point ...

Abstract

Evolutionary studies on animal body size have primarily focussed on selective pressures operating during the adult life. In contrast, ontogenetic pathways leading to differently sized adults have received less attention. In the present study, based on a common garden experiment, we report...

Abstract

The mechanisms by which organisms adapt to variable environments are a fundamental question in evolutionary biology and are important to protect important species in response to a changing climate. An interesting candidate to study this question is the honey bee Apis cerana, a keystone pollinator...

Abstract

Preservation of genetic diversity is critical to successful conservation, and there is increasing demand for the inclusion of ecologically meaningful genetic information in management decisions. Supportive breeding programmes are increasingly implemented to combat declines in many species, yet...
