Tigers and their close relatives (Panthera) are some of the world's most endangered species. Here we report the de novo assembly of an Amur tiger whole-genome sequence as well as the genomic sequences of a white Bengal tiger, African lion, white African lion and snow leopard. Through comparative genetic analyses of these genomes, we find genetic signatures(More)
In contrast with wild species, cultivated crop genomes consist of reshuffled recombination blocks, which occurred by crossing and selection processes. Accordingly, recombination block-based genomics analysis can be an effective approach for the screening of target loci for agricultural traits. We propose the variation block method, which is a three-step(More)
The International HapMap Project and the Human Genome Diversity Project (HGDP) provide plentiful resources on human genome information to the public. However, this kind of information is limited because of the small sample size in both databases. A Genome-Wide Association Study has been conducted with 8,842 Korean subjects as a part of the Korea Association(More)
To dissect the genetic architecture of blood pressure and assess effects on target organ damage, we analyzed 128,272 SNPs from targeted and genome-wide arrays in 201,529 individuals of European ancestry, and genotypes from an additional 140,886 individuals were used for validation. We identified 66 blood pressure-associated loci, of which 17 were new; 15(More)
Pakistan covers a key geographic area in human history, being both part of the Indus River region that acted as one of the cradles of civilization and as a link between Western Eurasia and Eastern Asia. This region is inhabited by a number of distinct ethnic groups, the largest being the Punjabi, Pathan (Pakhtuns), Sindhi, and Baloch. We analyzed the first(More)
Through 2011, GWASs have identified 33 genetic loci that are linked to blood pressure. Data from the 1000 Genomes Project were used to examine these loci. By searching nonsynonymous SNPs, promoter SNPs, splicing site SNPs, and gain- or loss-of-stop codon SNPs in 1000 Genomes Project data, we identified 2,113 functional variants in 66 genes in the 33 loci:(More)
