We present here a draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus. Because the chicken is a modern descendant of the dinosaurs and the first non-mammalian amniote to have its genome sequenced, the draft sequence of its genome—composed of approximately one billion base pairs of sequence and an estimated 20,000–23,000 genes—provides a new perspective on vertebrate genome evolution, while also improving the annotation of mammalian genomes. For example, the evolutionary distance between… Expand
Molecular evolution of genes in avian genomes
TLDR
There was a weak yet significant negative correlation between ω and recombination rate, which is in the direction predicted by the Hill-Robertson effect if slightly deleterious mutations contribute to protein evolution, and these findings set the stage for studies of functional genetics of avian genes.

TLDR
The chicken genome sequence is important because it fills a gap in knowledge and understanding of the evolution and conservation of genes, regulatory sequences, genomes, and karyotypes, and it is the first livestock species to be sequenced and so leads the way for others. Expand
Comparative sequencing provides insights about the structure and conservation of marsupial and monotreme genomes.
TLDR
Genetic sequence from noneutherian mammals can contribute uniquely to unraveling the functional and evolutionary histories of the mammalian genome, and analyses of the major mammalian lineages reveal distinct patterns with respect to the common presence of evolutionarily conserved vertebrates. Expand
A new duck genome reveals conserved and convergently evolved chromosome architectures of birds and mammals
TLDR
It is found that the duck topologically associated domains (TAD) are demarcated by putative binding sites of the insulator protein CTCF, housekeeping genes, or transitions of active/inactive chromatin compartments, indicating the conserved mechanisms of spatial chromosome folding with mammals. Expand
Initial sequence of the chimpanzee genome and comparison with the human genome
TLDR
It is found that the patterns of evolution in human and chimpanzee protein-coding genes are highly correlated and dominated by the fixation of neutral and slightly deleterious alleles. Expand

  • 2005
TLDR
Comparative analysis reveals a compact avian genome structure containing a similar number of genes as found in mammals but with shorter intergenic DNA sequences and fewer repeats, particularly for microchromosomes. Expand
Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation
TLDR
This work explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian species representing all major extant clades to reveal that pan-avian genomic diversity covaries with adaptations to different lifestyles and convergent evolution of traits. Expand
A new duck genome reveals conserved and convergently evolved chromosome architectures of birds and mammals
TLDR
A nearly complete chromosomal assembly of a female Pekin duck is produced by combining long-read sequencing and multiplatform scaffolding techniques, finding that the duck topologically associated domains (TAD) are demarcated by putative binding sites of the insulator protein CTCF, housekeeping genes, or transitions of active/inactive chromatin compartments, indicating conserved mechanisms of spatial chromosome folding with mammals. Expand
Genome evolution in Reptilia, the sister group of mammals.
TLDR
The recent sequencing of the chicken and zebra finch genomes has begun to clarify the events leading from an ancestral amniote genome--predicted to be large and to possess a diverse repeat landscape on par with mammals and a birdlike sex chromosome system--to the small and highly streamlined genomes of birds.

Novel Insights into Chromosome Evolution in Birds, Archosaurs, and Reptiles
TLDR
This work performed a sequence-based comparison of 21 avian and 5 outgroup species using recently sequenced genomes across the avian family tree and a newly-developed algorithm to reveal HSB and EBR roles in avian evolution. Expand

Comparative architectures of mammalian and chicken genomes reveal highly variable rates of genomic rearrangements across different lineages.
TLDR
This analysis reveals a very low rate of rearrangements in chicken, in the early mammalian ancestor, or in both, and suggests the suggested number of interchromosomal rearrangement between the mammalian ancestor and chicken only slightly exceeds the number that happened in the mouse lineage over the course of about 87 million years.

Genome sequence of the Brown Norway rat yields insights into mammalian evolution
TLDR
This first comprehensive analysis of the genome sequence of the Brown Norway (BN) rat strain is reported, which is the third complete mammalian genome to be deciphered, and three-way comparisons with the human and mouse genomes resolve details of mammalian evolution. Expand
Comparative analyses of multi-species sequences from targeted genomic regions
TLDR
The generation and analysis of over 12 megabases of sequence from 12 species, all derived from the genomic region orthologous to a segment of about 1.8 Mb on human chromosome 7 containing ten genes, show conservation reflecting both functional constraints and the neutral mutational events that shaped this genomic region.

Genome duplication in the teleost fish Tetraodon nigroviridis reveals the early vertebrate proto-karyotype
TLDR
Genome analysis provides a greatly improved fish gene catalogue, including identifying key genes previously thought to be absent in fish, and reconstructs much of the evolutionary history of ancient and recent chromosome rearrangements leading to the modern human karyotype. Expand
Whole-Genome Shotgun Assembly and Analysis of the Genome of Fugu rubripes

The dynamics of chromosome evolution in birds and mammals
TLDR
It is concluded that the organization of the human genome is closer to that of the chicken than the mouse and by adding comparative mapping results from a range of vertebrates, it is identified three possible phases of chromosome evolution. Expand
Initial sequencing and comparative analysis of the mouse genome

The results of an international collaboration to produce a high-quality draft sequence of the mouse genome are reported and an initial comparative analysis of the Mouse and human genomes is presented, describing some of the insights that can be gleaned from the two sequences. Expand
Numerous potentially functional but non-genic conserved sequences on human chromosome 21
TLDR
The integration of the properties of the conserved components of human chromosome 21 to the rapidly accumulating functional data for this chromosome will improve considerably the understanding of the role of sequence conservation in mammalian genomes. Expand

Three-way analysis of rearrangements leads to a reliable reconstruction of the genomic architecture of specific regions in the murid ancestor, including the X chromosome, and for the first time allows one to assign major rearrangement events to one of human, mouse, and rat lineages. Expand
