Abstract

Background: Several examples of structural variation (SV) affecting phenotypic traits have been reported in cattle. Currently the identification of SV from whole-genome sequence data (WGS) suffers from a high false positive rate. Our aim was to construct a high quality set of SV calls in cattle...

Abstract

Jiangxi province in China is rich in indigenous chicken breeds, which have diverse phenotypes and represent a valuable genetic resource for further genetic improvement of modern breeds. Here, we conducted a series of analyses to reveal genetic diversity, phylogenetic relationships and population...

Abstract

Background: Geese were domesticated over 6,000 years ago, making them one of the first domesticated poultry. Geese are capable of rapid growth, disease resistance, and high liver lipid storage capacity, and can be easily fed coarse fodder. Here, we sequence and analyze the whole-genome sequence of...

Abstract

Objective: The objective of this study was to find the proper model of combined loci in analysis of genetic co-adaptability, and add the data of genetic co-adaptability theory on evolution mechanism difference of genetic co-adaptability among breeds or between closely related species-goat. Method:...
