Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution
A draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus, provides a new perspective on vertebrate genome evolution, while also improving the annotation of mammalian genomes.
Analyses of pig genomes provide insight into porcine demography and evolution
The assembly and analysis of the genome sequence of a female domestic Duroc pig and a comparison with the genomes of wild and domestic pigs from Europe and Asia reveal a deep phylogenetic split between European and Asian wild boars ∼1 million years ago.
Design of a High Density SNP Genotyping Assay in the Pig Using SNPs Identified and Characterized by Next Generation Sequencing Technology
The results of this study indicate the utility of using next generation sequencing technologies to identify large numbers of reliable SNPs and demonstrate that the PorcineSNP60 Beadchip is an excellent tool that will likely be used in a variety of future studies in pigs.
A consensus linkage map of the chicken genome.
The compact physical size of the chicken genome, combined with the large size of its genetic map and the observed degree of conserved synteny, makes the chicken a valuable model organism in the genomics as well as the postgenomics era.
Biodiversity of 52 chicken populations assessed by microsatellite typing of DNA pools
The distribution of population-specific (private) alleles and the amount of genetic variation shared among populations supports the hypothesis that the red jungle fowl is the main progenitor of the domesticated chicken.

W whole-genome resequencing revealed strong signatures of selection at three loci harboring quantitative trait loci that explain a considerable part of one of the most characteristic morphological changes in the domestic pig—the elongation of the back and an increased number of vertebrae.
Genetic diversity of eleven European pig breeds
This study indicates that using genetic distances between breeds of farm animals in a classical taxonomic approach may not give clear resolution, but points to their usefulness in a prospective evaluation of diversity.
A high-density SNP-based linkage map of the chicken genome reveals sequence features correlated with recombination rate.
An analysis of the sequence composition at recombination hot and cold spots revealed a strong positive correlation between GC-rich sequences and high recombination rates, suggesting a functional relationship between recombination frequency and cohesin binding.
Empirical evaluation of genetic clustering methods using multilocus genotypes from 20 chicken breeds.
It is suggested that in species for which population structure is of interest, databases of multilocus genotypes at highly variable markers should be compiled and these genotypes could be used as training samples for genetic cluster analysis and to facilitate assignments of individuals of unknown origin to populations.

Microsatellite markers of the poly (CA) type in common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) are described and the possibility that these loci are tetraploid is discussed.
