Abstract In this work, we report the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Sus cebifrons (Visayan warty pig). The total length of the mitogenome was 16,475 bp, and its overall base composition was estimated to be 35.0% for A, 25.8% for T, 26.2% for C and 13.0% for G, indicating an A-T (60.8%)-rich feature in Sus cebifrons mitogenome. It contained the typical structure of 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and a noncoding control region (D-loop region). The… Expand

A Phylogenetic Study of the Origin of the Domestic Pig Estimated from the Near-Complete mtDNA Genome
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.

The origin of the domestic pig: independent domestication and subsequent introgression.
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
The taxonomy, distribution and status of Philippine Wild pigs
Recent studies have revealed that there are three species and at least two subspecies of wild pigs in the Philippines, of which two species and one subspecies are endemic. This is a larger number ofExpand
New phylogenetic perspectives among species of South-east Asian wild pig ( Sus sp.) based on mtDNA sequences and morphometric data
The results suggest the existence of two main evolutionary clades that are likely to have diverged during the Pliocene in SEA: one including wild pig populations distributed in the Philippines and Sulawesi, and one including the Indonesian and Malaysian bearded pigs, and the widespread Eurasian wild boar.

Strong signatures of selection in the domestic pig genome
W whole-genome resequencing revealed strong signatures of selection at three loci harboring quantitative trait loci that explain a considerable part of one of the most characteristic morphological changes in the domestic pig—the elongation of the back and an increased number of vertebrae. Expand
The Philippine spotted deer and the Visayan warty pig
Habitat destruction and hunting pressure have caused local extinction of the spotted deer and the warty pig in the Visayan Islands, and the remaining populations are not expected to survive very much longer if current practices continue. Expand
