Integrated maps in quail (Coturnix japonica) confirm the high degree of synteny conservation with chicken (Gallus gallus) despite 35 million years of divergence
BackgroundBy comparing the quail genome with that of chicken, chromosome rearrangements that have occurred in these two galliform species over 35 million years of evolution can be detected. From aExpand

A first-generation microsatellite linkage map of the Japanese quail.
A linkage map of the Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) genome was constructed based upon segregation analysis of 72 microsatellite loci in 433 F(2) progeny of 10 half-sib families obtained from aExpand

Heterosis in egg-laying lines under divergent selection for residual feed consumption.
Two lines selected since 1976 for high (R+) or low (R-) residual feed consumption (RFC) from a common genetic base were compared with one another and with their F1 reciprocal crosses for traits ofExpand

Characterization of Japanese Quail yellow as a Genomic Deletion Upstream of the Avian Homolog of the Mammalian ASIP (agouti) Gene
ASIP is an important pigmentation gene responsible for dorsoventral and hair-cycle-specific melanin-based color patterning in mammals. We report some of the first evidence that the avian ASIP geneExpand

Association of a Glu92Lys substitution in MC1R with extended brown in Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica).
We investigated melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) as a candidate locus for the Extended brown phenotype in quail, in which there is a general darkening throughout the plumage. An initial screen ofExpand

Association of a single-nucleotide substitution in TYRP1 with roux in Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica).
We investigated TYRP1 as a candidate locus for the recessive, sex-linked roux (br(r)) phenotype in Japanese quail. A screen of the entire coding sequence of TYRP1 in roux and wild-type quail revealedExpand

Carcase characteristics of a heavy Japanese quail line under introgression with the roux gene
1. The roux plumage sex-linked recessive gene may be used for early sexing of Japanese quail in crossbreeding production systems with wild-type and roux lines. However, associated effects of the geneExpand

Associated effects of divergent selection for residual feed consumption on reproduction, sperm characteristics, and mitochondria of spermatozoa.
Eighteen generations of divergent selection for residual feed intake have been completed in two Rhode Island Red lines of domestic fowl. The high intake R+ line and the low intake R- line cocks usedExpand

Computer simulation model of swine production systems: I. Modeling the growth of young pigs.
Theoretical concepts and relationships were used to develop a deterministic pig growth model. The model predicts, in a continuous form, growth and body composition of boars, barrows, and giltsExpand

Associated effects of the roux plumage color mutation on growth, carcass traits, egg production, and reproduction of Japanese quail.
After two generations of introgression of the sex-linked recessive roux color mutation into a commercial broiler Japanese quail line with wild-type plumage, growth, carcass, egg laying, andExpand
