The Atlantic salmon genome provides insights into rediploidization
The whole-genome duplication 80 million years ago of the common ancestor of salmonids (salmonid-specific fourth vertebrate whole-genome duplication, Ss4R) provides unique opportunities to learn aboutExpand
A dense SNP-based linkage map for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) reveals extended chromosome homeologies and striking differences in sex-specific recombination patterns
BackgroundThe Atlantic salmon genome is in the process of returning to a diploid state after undergoing a whole genome duplication (WGD) event between 25 and100 million years ago. Existing data onExpand
Sex-dependent dominance at a single locus maintains variation in age at maturity in salmon
Males and females share many traits that have a common genetic basis; however, selection on these traits often differs between the sexes, leading to sexual conflict. Under such sexual antagonism,Expand
Sequencing the genome of the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
The International Collaboration to Sequence the Atlantic Salmon Genome (ICSASG) will produce a genome sequence that identifies and physically maps all genes in the Atlantic salmon genome and acts asExpand
Genetic diversity and population structure of 20 North European cattle breeds.
Blood samples were collected from 743 animals from 15 indigenous, 2 old imported, and 3 commercial North European cattle breeds. The samples were analyzed for 11 erythrocyte antigen systems, 8Expand
Genome-Wide Survey of SNP Variation Uncovers the Genetic Structure of Cattle Breeds
A survey of genetic diversity of cattle suggests two domestication events in Asia and selection by husbandry. Not Just Dinner on Legs Several thousand years ago, human beings realized the virtues ofExpand
The genome sequence of Atlantic cod reveals a unique immune system
Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a large, cold-adapted teleost that sustains long-standing commercial fisheries and incipient aquaculture. Here we present the genome sequence of Atlantic cod, showingExpand
Fine mapping of a quantitative trait locus for twinning rate using combined linkage and linkage disequilibrium mapping.
A novel and robust method for the fine-scale mapping of genes affecting complex traits, which combines linkage and linkage-disequilibrium information, is proposed. Linkage information refers toExpand
The role of melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) receptor in bovine coat color determination
The melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) receptor has a major function in the regulation of black (eumelanin) versus red (phaeomelanin) pigment synthesis within melanocytes. We report three allelesExpand
Two adjacent inversions maintain genomic differentiation between migratory and stationary ecotypes of Atlantic cod.
Atlantic cod is composed of multiple migratory and stationary populations widely distributed in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Northeast Arctic cod (NEAC) population in the Barents Sea undertakesExpand
