Cytogenetic chromosome maps offer molecular tools for genome analysis and clinical cytogenetics and are of particular importance for species with difficult karyotypes, such as camelids (2n = 74). Building on the available human-camel zoo-fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) data, we developed the first cytogenetic map for the alpaca (Lama pacos, LPA) genome by isolating and identifying 151 alpaca bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clones corresponding to 44 specific genes. The genes… Expand
Cytogenetic Mapping of 35 New Markers in the Alpaca (Vicugna pacos)
TLDR
The findings validate, refine and correct the current alpaca assembly VicPac3.1 by anchoring unassigned sequence scaffolds, and ordering and orienting assigned scaffolds to contribute to the improvement in the al paca reference genome and advances camelid molecular cytogenetics. Expand
A cytogenetic and comparative map of camelid chromosome 36 and the minute in alpacas
TLDR
A cytogenetic map for chr36 was constructed in the alpaca, llama, and dromedary and showed its homology to human chromosome 7 (HSA7) at 49.8–55.5 Mb, and it was confirmed that the minute chromosome was a derivative of chr 36, but the small size was not a result of a large deletion or a translocation.

A Comprehensive Whole-Genome Integrated Cytogenetic Map for the Alpaca (Lama pacos)
TLDR
The first comprehensive whole-genome integrated cytogenetic map for the alpaca is developed using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and CHORI-246 BAC library clones and revealed remarkable evolutionary conservation of gene order within many human-camelid HSBs. Expand
Application of Veterinary Cytogenetics in Domestic Animals: A Review
TLDR
A number of techniques employed in cytogenetics and their methodologies are discussed, and where future focus should be for the benefits of animal production are recommended. Expand
Chromosome-Level Alpaca Reference Genome VicPac3.1 Improves Genomic Insight Into the Biology of New World Camelids
TLDR
A chromosome-level improved reference assembly for the alpaca genome VicPac3.1 presents a significant improvement in completeness, contiguity and accuracy over VicPac2 and is an important tool for the advancement of genomics research in all New World camelids. Expand
Chromosome Aberrations and Fertility Disorders in Domestic Animals.
TLDR
How advancing knowledge about animal genomes has improved the authors' understanding of connections between gross structural or molecular chromosome variations and reproductive disorders is described and how traditional cytogenetics is interfacing with advanced genomics approaches is described.

An Autosomal Translocation 73,XY,t(12;20)(q11;q11) in an Infertile Male Llama (Lama glama) With Teratozoospermia
TLDR
This is the first case of a translocation and the first autosomal aberration reported in any camelid species and underlines the power of molecular cytogenetics methods over conventional banding-based chromosome analysis for explicit identification of normal and aberrant chromosomes in camelid karyotypes.

Casein Gene Cluster in Camelids: Comparative Genome Analysis and New Findings on Haplotype Variability and Physical Mapping
TLDR
A comparative genome analysis and synthesize the literature data on camelids casein cluster, to analyze the casein variability in two dromedary populations (Sudanese and Nigerian) using polymorphisms at CSN1S1, CSN2, and CSN3, and to physically map the case in cluster in alpaca. Expand
Chromosomal Localization of Candidate Genes for Fiber Growth and Color in Alpaca (Vicugna pacos)
TLDR
This work localizes alpaca candidate genes for fiber growth and color using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and results are concordant with known conserved synteny blocks between camelids and humans, cattle and pigs. Expand
Comparative Organization and Gene Expression Profiles of the Porcine Pseudoautosomal Region
TLDR
The results improved the current SSCX sequence assembly and facilitated distinction between the PAR and X-specific genes to study their expression in adult and embryonic tissues and suggest that the region might have important functions in early development in pigs. Expand
