Genome Sequence, Comparative Analysis, and Population Genetics of the Domestic Horse
A Horse Is a Horse, of Course The history of horse domestication is closely tied to the history of the human society. Wade et al. (p. 865) report on the sequencing and provide a single nucleotideExpand
Analysis of sequence variability of the bovine prion protein gene (PRNP) in German cattle breeds
Different alleles of the prion protein gene (PRNP) of human and sheep are known to be associated with varying susceptibilities to transmissible spongiform encephalopathies. However, no polymorphismsExpand
FEELnc: a tool for long non-coding RNA annotation and its application to the dog transcriptome
Abstract Whole transcriptome sequencing (RNA-seq) has become a standard for cataloguing and monitoring RNA populations. One of the main bottlenecks, however, is to correctly identify the differentExpand
Bovine Prion Protein Gene (PRNP) Promoter Polymorphisms Modulate PRNP Expression and May Be Responsible for Differences in Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Susceptibility*
The susceptibility of humans to the variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is greatly influenced by polymorphisms within the human prion protein gene (PRNP). Similar genetic differences exist in sheep, inExpand
Genetic Diversity in the Modern Horse Illustrated from Genome-Wide SNP Data
Horses were domesticated from the Eurasian steppes 5,000–6,000 years ago. Since then, the use of horses for transportation, warfare, and agriculture, as well as selection for desired traits andExpand
The role of stallion seminal proteins in fertilisation.
Seminal plasma proteins are secretory proteins originating mainly from the epididymis and the accessory sex glands. They are involved in the remodelling of the sperm surface which occurs during spermExpand
Single linkage group per chromosome genetic linkage map for the horse, based on two three-generation, full-sibling, crossbred horse reference families.
A genetic linkage map of the horse consisting of 742 markers, which comprises a single linkage group for each of the autosomes and the X chromosome, is presented. The map has been generated from twoExpand
A High Density SNP Array for the Domestic Horse and Extant Perissodactyla: Utility for Association Mapping, Genetic Diversity, and Phylogeny Studies
An equine SNP genotyping array was developed and evaluated on a panel of samples representing 14 domestic horse breeds and 18 evolutionarily related species. More than 54,000 polymorphic SNPsExpand
A Genome-Wide Association Study Reveals Loci Influencing Height and Other Conformation Traits in Horses
The molecular analysis of genes influencing human height has been notoriously difficult. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for height in humans based on tens of thousands to hundreds ofExpand
