Microsatellite mutation rates in the eastern tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum tigrinum) differ 10-fold across loci
Microsatellites are commonly used for mapping and population genetics because of their high heterozygosities and allelic variability (i.e., polymorphism). Microsatellite markers are generally moreExpand

Genetic structure and viability selection in the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), a vagile raptor with a Holarctic distribution
Molecular markers can reveal interesting aspects of organismal ecology and evolution, especially when surveyed in rare or elusive species. Herein, we provide a preliminary assessment of golden eagleExpand

Condition‐dependent mate choice and a reproductive disadvantage for MHC‐divergent male tiger salamanders
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) alleles likely have adaptive value because of overdominance, in which case MHC heterozygous individuals have increased fitness relative to homozygotes. BecauseExpand

Evolutionary relationship among three native and two crossbreed sheep breeds of Turkey: preliminary results
SUMMARY The Turkish native sheep breeds, possibly being the neighbours of the earliest domesticated sheep populations, might be harbouring important genetic characteristics to be employed in theExpand

Use of Noninvasive Genetics to Assess Nest and Space Use by White-tailed Eagles
Abstract Movement and space use are important components of animal interactions with the environment. However, for hard-to-monitor raptor species, there are substantial gaps in our understanding ofExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of native Turkish cattle breeds using microsatellite markers
A total of 20 microsatellite DNA markers were used for genetic characterization and determination of phylogenetic relationships of native cattle breeds of Turkey, including the Anatolian Grey (AG),Expand

Polymorphism of Alternative Splicing of Major Histocompatibility Complex Transcripts in Wild Tiger Salamanders
Alternative splicing (AS) of mRNA transcripts is increasingly recognized as a source of transcriptome diversity. To date, most AS studies have focused either on comparisons across taxa or onExpand

Selection signatures in goats reveal copy number variants underlying breed-defining coat color phenotypes
Domestication and human selection have formed diverse goat breeds with characteristic phenotypes. This process correlated with the fixation of causative genetic variants controlling breed-specificExpand
