Abstract

Background: Runs of homozygosity (ROH) islands are stretches of homozygous sequence in the genome of a large proportion of individuals in a population. Algorithms for the detection of ROH depend on the similarity of haplotypes. Coverage gaps and copy number variants (CNV) may result in incorrect...

Abstract

Interferon-gamma release assays are used for the diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) in cattle as well as several other species. They rely on the measurement of IFN-γ, which is produced by sensitised T-cells after an infection with intracellular microbes. In Germany and the adjacent Austrian regions,...
