AbstractFull Text

Cattle supply an important source of nutrition for humans in the world. CpG islands (CGIs) are very important and useful, as they carry functionally relevant epigenetic loci for whole genome studies. As a matter of fact, there have been no formal analyses of CGIs at the DNA sequence level in cattle ...

CABI Book Chapter Info
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

The recently sequenced cattle (Bos taurus) genome unraveled the unique genomic features of the species and provided the molecular basis for applying a systemic approach to systematically link genomic information to metabolic traits. Comparative analysis has identified a variety of evolutionary...

Abstract

Background: Natural selection has molded evolution across all taxa. At an arguable date of around 330,000 years ago there were already at least two different types of cattle that became ancestors of nearly all modern cattle, the Bos taurus taurus more adapted to temperate climates and the...

Abstract

Background: Haplotypes with reduced or missing homozygosity may harbor deleterious alleles that compromise juvenile survival. A scan for homozygous haplotype deficiency revealed a short segment on bovine chromosome 19 (Braunvieh haplotype 2, BH2) that was associated with high juvenile mortality in...

Abstract

Background: Chlamydia pecorum is an important pathogen of domesticated livestock including sheep, cattle and pigs. This pathogen is also a key factor in the decline of the koala in Australia. We sequenced the genomes of three koala C. pecorum strains, isolated from the urogenital tracts and...

Abstract

Background: Genomic information allows population relatedness to be inferred and selected genes to be identified. Single nucleotide polymorphism microarray (SNP-chip) data, a proxy for genome composition, contains patterns in allele order and proportion. These patterns can be quantified by...

Abstract

Background: Pneumonia and myocarditis are the most commonly reported diseases due to Histophilus somni, an opportunistic pathogen of the reproductive and respiratory tracts of cattle. Thus far only a few genes involved in metabolic and virulence functions have been identified and characterized in ...
