The domestication of animals led to a major shift in human subsistence patterns, from a hunter–gatherer to a sedentary agricultural lifestyle, which ultimately resulted in the development of complex societies. Over the past 15,000 years, the phenotype and genotype of multiple animal species, such as dogs, pigs, sheep, goats, cattle and horses, have been substantially altered during their adaptation to the human niche. Recent methodological innovations, such as improved ancient DNA extraction… Expand
Understanding the prehistory of domestic animals in East and Central Asia through scientific archaeozoology
Abstract The last several decades have seen the study of animal domestication and dispersal events in East and Central Asia revolutionized by expanded research in underrepresented regions, and newExpand
Dog domestication and the dual dispersal of people and dogs into the Americas
TLDR
Comparing population genetic results of humans and dogs from Siberia, Beringia, and North America shows that there is a close correlation in the movement and divergences of their respective lineages, and suggests that dogs were domesticated in Siberia by ∼23,000 y ago, possibly while both people and wolves were isolated during the harsh climate of the Last Glacial Maximum.

Large-scale genomic analysis reveals the genetic cost of chicken domestication
TLDR
A new landscape of demographic history and genomic changes associated with chicken domestication is revealed and insight is provided into the evolutionary genomic profiles of domesticated animals managed under modern human selection. Expand
Human adaptation, demography, and cattle domestication: an overview of the complexity of lactase persistence in Africa.
TLDR
This review summarizes recent advances in the understanding of the genetic basis and evolutionary history of lactase persistence, as well as the factors that influenced the origin and spread of pastoralism in Africa. Expand
Spectrum of Camel Evolution and its Impact on Ancient Human Migration
The Evolutionary history and domestication of Camels are largely unexplored because of the lack of well dated early archaeological records. However, limited records suggest that domestication ofExpand
Historical Introgression from Wild Relatives Enhanced Climatic Adaptation and Resistance to Pneumonia in Sheep
TLDR
It is concluded that wild introgression enhanced climatic adaptation and resistance to pneumonia in sheep that has enabled them to adapt to varying climatic and environmental conditions after domestication. Expand
Genomic consequences of domestication of the Siamese fighting fish
TLDR
Genomic analyses suggest that betta fish were domesticated at least 1,000 years ago, centuries earlier than previously thought, and demonstrate how simple genetic architectures paired with anatomical modularity can lead to vast phenotypic diversity generated during animal domestication. Expand
Harmful Mutation Load in the Mitochondrial Genomes of Cattle Breeds 
TLDR
This study investigated the magnitude of difference in the deleterious mutations present in the mitochondrial genomes of various breeds using mitochondrial genome data from 364 animals belonging to 18 cattle breeds of the world to reveal more than a fivefold difference. Expand

Ancient goat genomes reveal mosaic domestication in the Fertile Crescent
TLDR
It is demonstrated that multiple divergent ancient wild goat sources were domesticated in a dispersed process that resulted in genetically and geographically distinct Neolithic goat populations, echoing contemporaneous human divergence across the region. Expand
Ancient genomic changes associated with domestication of the horse
TLDR
Early domestication selection patterns supporting the neural crest hypothesis are found, which provides a unified developmental origin for common domestic traits and reveals that Iron Age Scythian steppe nomads implemented breeding strategies involving no detectable inbreeding and selection for coat-color variation and robust forelimbs. Expand
Prehistoric genomes reveal the genetic foundation and cost of horse domestication
Significance The domestication of the horse revolutionized warfare, trade, and the exchange of people and ideas. This at least 5,500-y-long process, which ultimately transformed wild horses into theExpand
Establishing the validity of domestication genes using DNA from ancient chickens
TLDR
Estimating genetic variability in ancient European chickens over the past 2,000 years shows that a mutation thought to be crucial during chicken domestication was not subjected to strong human-mediated selection until much later in time, demonstrating that the ubiquity of mutations does not necessarily imply ancient origins. Expand
Unlocking the origins and biology of domestic animals using ancient DNA and paleogenomics
TLDR
This review shows how studies of ancient DNA from domestic animals and their wild progenitors and congeners have shed new light on the genetic origins of domesticates, and on the process of domestication itself. Expand
Ancient pigs reveal a near-complete genomic turnover following their introduction to Europe
TLDR
While pigs were not independently domesticated in Europe, the vast majority of human-mediated selection over the past 5,000 y focused on the genomic fraction derived from the European wild boars, and not on the fraction that was selected by early Neolithic farmers over the first 2,500 y of the domestication process.

The goat domestication process inferred from large-scale mitochondrial DNA analysis of wild and domestic individuals
TLDR
This study compared the genetic diversity of domestic goats to that of the modern representatives of their wild ancestor, the bezoar, by analyzing 473 samples collected over the whole distribution range of the latter species, and found no haplotype that could have been domesticated in the eastern half of the Iranian Plateau, nor further to the east.

A population genetics view of animal domestication.
TLDR
Novel approaches to generating and analysing genetic data are discussed, emphasising the importance of an explicit hypothesis-testing approach for the inference of the origins and subsequent evolution and demography of domestic animals. Expand
Multiple maternal origins and weak phylogeographic structure in domestic goats
TLDR
It is suggested that goats and other farm animals have multiple maternal origins with a possible center of origin in Asia, as well as in the Fertile Crescent, and goat populations are surprisingly less genetically structured than cattle populations. Expand

TLDR
This review focuses on what is currently known about the genetic architecture of domesticated animal species, if genes of large effect are prevalent in driving the domestication phenotype, and whether pleiotropy can explain the loci underpinning these diverse traits being colocated. Expand
