MATE SELECTION IN AQUACULTURE BREEDING USING DIFFERENTIAL EVOLUTION
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-04-01)
Analysis of polymorphisms in the mitochondrial ND5 gene in Pantaneira and Creole breeds of sheep.
(African Journal of Biotechnology v. 14, n. 5, pp. 438-441, 2015, 2015)
Genetic Diversity in the Modern Horse Illustrated from Genome-Wide SNP Data
Horses were domesticated from the Eurasian steppes 5,000-6,000 years ago. Since then, the use of horses for transportation, warfare, and agriculture, as well as selection for desired traits and fitness, has resulted in ...
Transcriptome architecture across tissues in the pig
(Biomed Central Ltd., 2008-04-16)
Background: Artificial selection has resulted in animal breeds with extreme phenotypes. As an organism is made up of many different tissues and organs, each with its own genetic programme, it is pertinent to ask: How ...
Impact of breed and sex on porcine endocrine transcriptome: a bayesian biometrical analysis
(Biomed Central Ltd., 2009-02-24)
Background: Transcriptome variability is due to genetic and environmental causes, much like any other complex phenotype. Ascertaining the transcriptome differences between individuals is an important step to understand how ...
Assessment of genetic diversity and structure of major sheep breeds from Pakistan
The present study aimed at the genetic characterization of major economically important sheep (Ovis aries) breeds from Pakistan. A total of 155 sheep from five breeds, Balkhi (PBS), Kaghani (PKS), Damani (PDS), Salt Range ...
Detection of differentially methylated regions of irradiated fig tree selections
(Univ Sao Paolo, 2017-07-01)
Fig tree (Ficus carica L.) breeding programs using conventional methods, such as directed crosses, to obtain new cultivars, are unworkable in many countries, including Brazil. Consequently, genetic breeding through mutagenesis ...
Mapping molecular diversity of indigenous goat genetic resources of Asia
The world goat population is approximately 1.0 billion with more than half of them present in Asia. The Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture initiated a programme to characterize goat genetic ...
Genetic Structure and Diversity of Four Chilean Sheep Breeds
