Genomics of natural bird populations: a gene‐based set of reference markers evenly spread across the avian genome
TLDR
A genome‐wide reference set of conserved avian gene markers, broadly applicable across birds, identified by aligning protein‐coding sequences from the recently assembled chicken genome with orthologous sequences in zebra finch to find particularly conserved exonic regions flanking introns of suitable size for subsequent amplification and sequencing.
Microsatellites and single nucleotide polymorphisms in avian hybrid identification : a comparative case study
TLDR
The study shows that the use of various sets of markers could lead to strikingly different assignment results, hybridisation studies may have been affected by too low a resolution power of used markers, and that an appropriate set of markers is essential for successful hybrid identification.
Nucleotide variation in three wild bird species collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis), blue tit (Parus caerurelus) and great reed warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus)
To understand the fundamental processes involved in how wild species adapt to their environment is of great importance in ecological and evolutionary studies. Finding the genes and polymorphisms that
