Feed conversion ratio (FCR) is an economically important trait in broilers and feed accounts for a significant proportion of the costs involved in broiler production. To explore the contribution of functional variants to FCR trait, we analyzed coding and non-coding single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) across the genome by exome sequencing in seven pairs of(More)
Buccal mucosal cancer (BMC) is a multifactorial disease with poorly defined genetic profile and prognosis due to late detection stage and unavailability of reliable prognostic markers. To identify aberrant transcriptional events, we employed high throughput RNA-Seq analysis of BMC and normal tissue. Comparative transcriptome analysis with Cufflinks revealed(More)
AIM To gain a greater understanding of the ecology and metabolic potential of the rumen microbiome with the changes in the animal diet. METHODS Diet composed of varying proportion of green and dry roughages along with grains was given to 8 Mehsani buffaloes, and rumen metagenome was sketched using shotgun semiconductor sequencing. RESULTS In the present(More)
Muscle growth and development from the embryonic to the adult stage of an organism consists of a series of exquisitely regulated and orchestrated changes in expression of genes leading to muscle maturation. In this study, we performed whole transcriptome profiling of adult caprine skeletal muscle derived myoblast and fused myotubes. Using Ion Torrent PGM(More)
Rumen microbiome represents rich source of enzymes degrading complex plant polysaccharides. We describe here analysis of Carbohydrate Active Enzymes (CAZymes) from 3.5 gigabase sequences of metagenomic data from rumen samples of Mehsani buffaloes fed on different proportions of green or dry roughages to concentrate ration. A total of 2597 contigs encoding(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome of an endangered mahseer (Deccan mahseer), Tor khudree was sequenced using Ion torrent platform for the first time. The genome sequence was 16 573 bp in size, and consists of 13 protein coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNA genes and 1 control region. The gene organization and its order were similar to other vertebrates. The(More)
The recent advances in high throughput sequencing technology accelerate possible ways for the study of genome wide variation in several organisms and associated consequences. In the present study, mutations in TGFBR3 showing significant association with FCR trait in chicken during exome sequencing were further analyzed. Out of four SNPs, one nsSNP(More)
The differential transcriptome analysis provides better understanding of molecular pathways leading to cancer, which in turn allows designing the effective strategies for diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and prediction of therapeutic outcome. This study describes the transcriptome analysis of buccal cancer and normal tissue by CLC Genomics Workbench from(More)
OBJECTIVES Alternative splicing (AS) is a key regulatory mechanism in the process of protein synthesis generating transcriptome and proteome diversity. In this study, we attempted to identify alternative splicing in a pair of BMSCC cancer and adjacent normal tissue using RNAseq datasets and also assessed the potential of these datasets to provide(More)
Rumen flukes are parasitic trematodes (Platyhelminthes: Digenea) of major socioeconomic importance in many countries. Key representatives, such as Paramphistomum cervi, can cause "Rumen fluke disease" or paramphistomosis and undermine economic animal productivity and welfare. P. cervi is primarily a problem in sheep, goat and buffalo production as a(More)
