Domestication of wild boar (Sus scrofa) and subsequent selection have resulted in dramatic phenotypic changes in domestic pigs for a number of traits, including behavior, body composition, reproduction, and coat color. Here we have used whole-genome resequencing to reveal some of the loci that underlie phenotypic evolution in European domestic pigs. Selective sweep analyses revealed strong signatures of selection at three loci harboring quantitative trait loci that explain a considerable part… Expand
Signatures of Selection and Interspecies Introgression in the Genome of Chinese Domestic Pigs
TLDR
The whole-genome resequencing data of 54 pigs from 9 Chinese diverse breeds and 16 wild boars from 7 localities across China was used to identify genes that show evidence of positive selection in the process of domestication and revealed the AHR gene associated with female reproduction is under strong positive selection. Expand
A genome-wide scan for signatures of directional selection in domesticated pigs
TLDR
A comprehensive genome map of directional selection is constructed by detecting selective sweeps using an FST-based approach that detects directional selection in lineages leading to the domesticated breeds and using a haplotype-based test that detects ongoing selective sweeps within the breeds. Expand
Evidence of long-term gene flow and selection during domestication from analyses of Eurasian wild and domestic pig genomes
TLDR
It is argued that recurrent selection for domestic traits likely counteracted the homogenizing effect of gene flow from wild boars and created 'islands of domestication' in the genome. Expand
Whole-genome sequencing of Berkshire (European native pig) provides insights into its origin and domestication
Domesticated organisms have experienced strong selective pressures directed at genes or genomic regions controlling traits of biological, agricultural or medical importance. The genome of native andExpand
Genome‐wide analysis reveals artificial selection on coat colour and reproductive traits in Chinese domestic pigs
TLDR
A genome‐wide analysis was performed to screen 196 regions with selective sweep signals in Tongcheng pigs, which are a typical indigenous Chinese breed, and characterized the candidate sites that adapt to artificial and environmental selections during the Chinese pig domestication. Expand
A genome-wide detection of selection signatures in conserved and commercial pig breeds maintained in Poland
TLDR
The study provides many potential candidate genes with implication for traits selected in the individual breeds and gives strong basis for further studies aiming at identification of sources of variation among the studied pig breeds. Expand
Pervasive selection pressure in wild and domestic pigs
TLDR
It is proposed to estimate the proportion of beneficial variants based on the asymptotic MacDonald Kreitman (MK) method, according to estimates of variability based on frequency spectrum, which indicates that both wild and domestic pigs display an important quantity of deleterious mutations and a high number of nearly-neutral mutations that may have a significant effect on the evolution of domestic and wild populations.

Divergent Evolutional Mode and Purifying Selection of the KIT Gene in European and Asian Domestic Pig Breeds
TLDR
It is indicated that domestic pigs in Europe and Asia have different lineage origins but the porcine KIT gene was undergoing a purifying selection during their evolutional histories. Expand
Population Genomics of Animal Domestication and Breed Development
TLDR
In this chapter, insights gained into the processes of domestication and breed development are synthesised from the patterns of diversity mapped across domestic genomes, with particular focus on cattle, chicken, dog, pig, and sheep breeds. Expand

Contrasting Mode of Evolution at a Coat Color Locus in Wild and Domestic Pigs
TLDR
Investigation of sequence diversity at the porcine melanocortin receptor 1 (MC1R) locus provides evidence that wild and domestic pig (Sus scrofa) haplotypes from China and Europe are the result of strikingly different selection pressures, and that coat color variation is the results of intentional selection for alleles that appeared after the advent of domestication. Expand
Whole-genome resequencing reveals loci under selection during chicken domestication
TLDR
The use of massively parallel sequencing is described to identify selective sweeps of favourable alleles and candidate mutations that have had a prominent role in the domestication of chickens and their subsequent specialization into broiler (meat- producing) and layer (egg-producing) chickens. Expand
Analyses of pig genomes provide insight into porcine demography and evolution
TLDR
The assembly and analysis of the genome sequence of a female domestic Duroc pig and a comparison with the genomes of wild and domestic pigs from Europe and Asia reveal a deep phylogenetic split between European and Asian wild boars ∼1 million years ago. Expand
The origin of the domestic pig: independent domestication and subsequent introgression.
TLDR
Clear evidence was obtained for domestication to have occurred independently from wild boar subspecies in Europe and Asia, and the data indicated a hybrid origin of some major "European" pig breeds. Expand
Identification of Genomic Regions Associated with Phenotypic Variation between Dog Breeds using Selection Mapping
TLDR
This study provides a catalogue of genomic regions showing extreme reduction in genetic variation or population differentiation in dogs, including many linked to phenotypic variation. Expand
A Phylogenetic Study of the Origin of the Domestic Pig Estimated from the Near-Complete mtDNA Genome
TLDR
There is compelling evidence that domestication of pigs must have occurred from both an Asian and a European subspecies of the wild boar, and the coexistence of such divergent mtDNA haplotypes for 100+ generations is expected to lead to the presence of recombinant haplotypes if paternal transmission and recombination occur at a low frequency. Expand
Genetic mapping of quantitative trait loci for growth and fatness in pigs.
TLDR
The European wild boar was crossed with the domesticated Large White pig to genetically dissect phenotypic differences between these populations for growth and fat deposition, and the genetic mapping of a major locus for fat deposition in the pig could have implications for understanding human obesity. Expand
Fine mapping of a swine quantitative trait locus for number of vertebrae and analysis of an orphan nuclear receptor, germ cell nuclear factor (NR6A1).
TLDR
The results suggest that NR6A1 is a strong candidate for one of the QTL that influence number of vertebrae in pigs, and the linkage disequilibrium of microsatellite markers in this interval found that 10 adjacent markers in a 300-kb region were almost fixed in European commercial breeds. Expand
Recombinational landscape of porcine X chromosome and individual variation in female meiotic recombination associated with haplotypes of Chinese pigs
TLDR
This study reveals marked regional, individual and haplotypes-specific differences in recombination rate on SSC-X, and the relationship between recombination variation and haplotype polymorphism is shown for the first time in pigs. Expand
Worldwide Phylogeography of Wild Boar Reveals Multiple Centers of Pig Domestication
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences from 686 wild and domestic pig specimens reveals multiple centers of domestication across Eurasia and that European, rather than Near Eastern, wild boar are the principal source of modern European domestic pigs. Expand
