Abstract

Background: The domestic turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) is an important agricultural species that is largely used as a meat-type bird. Characterizing genetic variation in populations of domesticated species and associating these variation patterns with the evolution, domestication, and selective...

Abstract

Background: Over the past years, the relationship between gene transcription and chromosomal location has been studied in a number of different vertebrate genomes. Regional differences in gene expression have been found in several different species. The chicken genome, as the closest sequenced...

Abstract

Background: Comparative genomics is a powerful means of establishing inter-specific relationships between gene function/location and allows insight into genomic rearrangements, conservation and evolutionary phylogeny. The availability of the complete sequence of the chicken genome has initiated the ...

Abstract

Karyotypes of chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus; 2n=78) and mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos; 2n=80) share the typical organization of avian karyotypes including a few macrochromosome pairs, numerous indistinguishable microchromosomes, and Z and W sex chromosomes. Previous banding studies revealed...

Abstract

Fucosyltransferases appeared early in evolution since they are present from bacteria to primates and their genes are well conserved. The aim of this work was to study these genes in the birds which were particularly important for the understanding of the evolution of the vertebrate genome. 12...

Abstract

Human Chromosome 19 (HSA19) is virtually completely sequenced. A complete physical contig map made up of BACs and cosmids is also available for this chromosome. It is, therefore, a rich source of information that we have used as the basis for a comparative mapping study with the chicken. Various...
