Evaluation of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in CAPN1 for association with meat tenderness in cattle.
Micromolar calcium activated neutral protease (CAPN1) was evaluated as a candidate gene for a quantitative trait locus (QTL) on BTA29 affecting meat tenderness by characterization of nucleotideExpand

Linkage disequilibrium in domestic sheep.
The last decade has seen a dramatic increase in the number of livestock QTL mapping studies. The next challenge awaiting livestock geneticists is to determine the actual genes responsible forExpand

An enhanced linkage map of the sheep genome comprising more than 1000 loci.
A medium-density linkage map of the ovine genome has been developed. Marker data for 550 new loci were generated and merged with the previous sheep linkage map. The new map comprises 1093 markersExpand

Mutations in sheep microsatellites.
During the construction of a primary linkage map of the sheep genome, a total of 46,225 parent-offspring transfer of microsatellite alleles were examined through the genotyping of the AgResearchExpand

Genetic variation within the Merino sheep breed: analysis of closely related populations using microsatellites.
Genetic relationships among six populations of Merino sheep were investigated using microsatellites. The history of the six populations is relatively well documented, with all being derived from theExpand

Exclusion probabilities for pedigree testing farm animals
Pedigree testing, using genetic markers, may be undertaken for a variety of situations, of which the classical paternity testing is only one. This has not always been made clear in the literature.Expand

Microsatellite evolution in congeneric mammals: domestic and bighorn sheep.
We compared genotypes at eight (AC)n microsatellite loci in domestic sheep (Ovis aries) and wild Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (O. canadensis). The domestic sheep had greater genetic variation, higherExpand

An autosomal genetic linkage map of the sheep genome.
We report the first extensive ovine genetic linkage map covering 2070 cM of the sheep genome. The map was generated from the linkage analysis of 246 polymorphic markers, in nine three-generationExpand
