BACKGROUND Previously reported evidence indicates that pigs were independently domesticated in multiple places throughout the world. However, a detailed picture of the origin and dispersal of domestic pigs in East Asia has not yet been reported. RESULTS Population phylogenomic analysis was conducted in domestic pigs and wild boars by screening the(More)
To assess the genetic diversity between randomly and selectively bred populations, we sequenced 438 bp of the mitochondrial DNA control region from 102 pigs. These samples represented four native pig breeds, one nucleus and one conservation herd from Yunnan, China. Twenty haplotypes with sixteen polymorphic sites were identified. The number of haplotypes in(More)
The genetic variations and polymorphisms of six microsatellite loci were analyzed to determine the population structure and breeding progress of BMY and Brahman cattle. The range of polymorphic information content of six loci was 0.524-0.752. The unbiased expected and observed heterozygosity were similar and were 0.7376 and 0.7396, 0.6412 and 0.6537 for BMY(More)
To investigate the genetic diversity and genetic data of Baoshan pig in Yunnan province,the mitochondrial DNA D-loop hypervariable segment I sequences 15 363 approximately 15 801 (438 bp) in 19 individuals of Baoshan pig were sequenced. Ten mitochondrial haplotypes were identified in the samples, with 8 sites showing polymorphism, which were 5 T/C and 1 G/A(More)
cattle (1/2 Brahman, 1/4 Murray Grey and 1/4 Yunnan Yellow cattle) has been inter se breeding since 1980s. Genetic diversity of BMY cattle was extensively investigated using 16 microsatellite markers. A total of 130 microsatellite alleles and high allele size variance were detected. All loci displayed high genetic diversity with overall mean of N a = 8.13,(More)
