Although it is known to be useful for certain genotype:phenotype assignments, our knowledge of the nature and extent of variation in the entire chicken (Gallus gallus) mitochondrial genome (mtGenome) is limited. Here, we used experimental and in silico tools to identify nucleotide variants in the mtGenome, including the coding and non-coding (D-loop)(More)
Antibody response, an important trait in both agriculture and biomedicine, plays a part in protecting animals from infection. Dissecting molecular basis of antibody response may improve artificial selection for natural disease resistance in livestock and poultry. A number of genetic markers associated with antibody response have been identified in the(More)
Here, we describe the budgie's mitochondrial genome sequence, a resource that can facilitate this parrot's use as a model organism as well as for determining its phylogenetic relatedness to other parrots/Psittaciformes. The estimated total length of the sequence was 18,193 bp. In addition to the to the 13 protein and tRNA and rRNA coding regions, the(More)
The domesticated turkey, Meleagris gallopavo, is believed to be a single breed with several varieties whose relatedness and origins remain poorly understood. Using the mitochondrial genome sequence (GenBank accession no. EF153719) that our group first reported, we investigated the relationships among 15 of the most widely occurring turkey varieties using(More)
The variants of a 500 base pair fragment of RubisCo large subunit gene (rbcL) from the phytoplanktonic DNA of Jiaozhou Bay surface seawater were amplified by using polymerase chain reaction and cloned. Twenty-eight clones were randomly selected and sequenced, which were further used to determine the molecular genetic diversity of the phytoplankton of(More)
