Rumen microbial community composition varies with diet and host, but a core microbiome is found across a wide geographical range
Ruminant livestock are important sources of human food and global greenhouse gas emissions. Feed degradation and methane formation by ruminants rely on metabolic interactions between rumen microbesExpand

Erratum: Rumen microbial community composition varies with diet and host, but a core microbiome is found across a wide geographical range
Ruminant livestock are important sources of human food and global greenhouse gas emissions. Feed degradation and methane formation by ruminants rely on metabolic interactions between rumen microbesExpand

Native breeds demonstrate high contributions to the molecular variation in northern European sheep
Population contribution to genetic diversity can be estimated using neutral variation. However, population expansion or hybridization of diverged ancestries may weaken correlation between neutral andExpand

The ruminal microbiome associated with methane emissions from ruminant livestock
Methane emissions from ruminant livestock contribute significantly to the large environmental footprint of agriculture. The rumen is the principal source of methane, and certain features of theExpand

Prioritization for conservation of northern European cattle breeds based on analysis of microsatellite data.
Northern European indigenous cattle breeds are currently endangered and at a risk of becoming extinct. We analyzed variation at 20 microsatellite loci in 23 indigenous, 3 old imported, and 9 modernExpand

Unfolding of population structure in Baltic sheep breeds using microsatellite analysis
Studies of domestic animals are performed on breeds, but a breed does not necessarily equate to a genetically defined population. The division of sheep from three native and four modern Baltic sheepExpand

Taxon abundance, diversity, co-occurrence and network analysis of the ruminal microbiota in response to dietary changes in dairy cows
The ruminal microbiome, comprising large numbers of bacteria, ciliate protozoa, archaea and fungi, responds to diet and dietary additives in a complex way. The aim of this study was to investigateExpand

Oral Samples as Non-Invasive Proxies for Assessing the Composition of the Rumen Microbial Community
Microbial community analysis was carried out on ruminal digesta obtained directly via rumen fistula and buccal fluid, regurgitated digesta (bolus) and faeces of dairy cattle to assess if non-invasiveExpand

Effect of DNA extraction and sample preservation method on rumen bacterial population.
The comparison of the bacterial profile of intracellular (iDNA) and extracellular DNA (eDNA) isolated from cow rumen content stored under different conditions was conducted. The influence of rumenExpand

The genetic structure of cattle populations (Bos taurus) in northern Eurasia and the neighbouring Near Eastern regions: implications for breeding strategies and conservation
We investigated the genetic structure and variation of 21 populations of cattle (Bos taurus) in northern Eurasia and the neighbouring Near Eastern regions of the Balkan, the Caucasus and UkraineExpand
