Abstract

After domestication 11 000 years ago in Asia Minor, the goat followed human migration to Europe and Asia. It was then introduced in Africa and is now raised all over the world. In this study, we exploited a dataset composed of 54 000 SNPs (Illumina goat DNA chip) to analyze the genetic diversity of ...

Abstract

Chromosomal inversions can provide windows onto the cytogenetic, molecular, evolutionary and demographic histories of a species. Here we investigate a paracentric 1.17-Mb inversion on chromosome 4 of Arabidopsis thaliana with nucleotide precision of its borders. The inversion is created by Vandal...

Abstract

Meiotic drive elements are a special class of evolutionarily "selfish genes" that subvert Mendelian segregation to gain preferential transmission at the expense of homologous loci. Many drive elements appear to be maintained in populations as stable polymorphisms, their equilibrium frequencies...

Abstract

Photobacterium damselae subsp. piscicida (Pdp) is an intracellular fish pathogen that causes photobacteriosis, a disease proven deadly in farmed fish worldwide. This work focuses on the analysis of genome sequences, chromosomes structure and gene contents of two strains from Sparus aurata (DI21)...

Abstract

Background: Swine brucellosis caused by B. suis biovar 2 is an emergent disease in domestic pigs in Europe. The emergence of this pathogen has been linked to the increase of extensive pig farms and the high density of infected wild boars (Sus scrofa). In Portugal and Spain, the majority of strains...

Abstract

Dicentrarchus labrax is one of the major marine aquaculture species in the European Union. In this study, we have developed a directed-sequencing strategy to sequence three sea bass chromosomes and compared results with other teleosts. Three BAC DNA pools were created from sea bass BAC clones that...

Abstract

Background - In canine genetics, the impact of population structure on whole genome association studies is typically addressed by sampling approximately equal numbers of cases and controls from dogs of a single breed, usually from the same country or geographic area. However one way to increase the ...

Abstract

Gibel carp, Carassius auratus gibelio Bloch, as a subspecies of Carassius auratus, has a wide geographic distribution from northern Europe to Asia. As a new culture target, it has widely been used for aquaculture practice for recent 30 years in China, and its production capacity has increased up to ...

Abstract

Chromosomal polymorphism was studied in 5 isolated natural populations of E. albipennis (2n = 6) from Bulgaria, Switzerland, Hungary and USSR [CIS]. Ten types of inversion, equally distributed on all 3 pairs of chromosomes, were observed; 2 inversions were seen in both homo- and heterozygous...
