Worldwide Phylogeography of Wild Boar Reveals Multiple Centers of Pig Domestication
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences from 686 wild and domestic pig specimens place the origin of wild boar in island Southeast Asia (ISEA), where they dispersed across Eurasia. Previous morphologicalExpand

Whole-genome resequencing reveals loci under selection during chicken domestication
Domestic animals are excellent models for genetic studies of phenotypic evolution. They have evolved genetic adaptations to a new environment, the farm, and have been subjected to strong human-drivenExpand

The origin of the domestic pig: independent domestication and subsequent introgression.
The domestic pig originates from the Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa). We have sequenced mitochondrial DNA and nuclear genes from wild and domestic pigs from Asia and Europe. Clear evidence wasExpand

A regulatory mutation in IGF2 causes a major QTL effect on muscle growth in the pig
Most traits and disorders have a multifactorial background indicating that they are controlled by environmental factors as well as an unknown number of quantitative trait loci (QTLs). TheExpand

Multiple marker mapping of quantitative trait loci in a cross between outbred wild boar and large white pigs.
A quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of growth and fatness data from a three generation pig experiment is presented. The population of 199 F2 animals was derived from a cross between wild boarExpand

Efficient mapping of mendelian traits in dogs through genome-wide association
With several hundred genetic diseases and an advantageous genome structure, dogs are ideal for mapping genes that cause disease. Here we report the development of a genotyping array with ∼27,000 SNPsExpand

Mutations in DMRT3 affect locomotion in horses and spinal circuit function in mice
Locomotion in mammals relies on a central pattern-generating circuitry of spinal interneurons established during development that coordinates limb movement. These networks produce left–rightExpand

Melanocortin receptor 1 (MC1R) mutations and coat color in pigs.
The melanocortin receptor 1 (MC1R) plays a central role in regulation of eumelanin (black/brown) and phaeomelanin (red/yellow) synthesis within the mammalian melanocyte and is encoded by theExpand

A high-density SNP-based linkage map of the chicken genome reveals sequence features correlated with recombination rate.
The resolution of the chicken consensus linkage map has been dramatically improved in this study by genotyping 12,945 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on three existing mapping populations inExpand
