Domestic animals are excellent models for genetic studies of phenotypic evolution. They have evolved genetic adaptations to a new environment, the farm, and have been subjected to strong human-driven selection leading to remarkable phenotypic changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour. Identifying the genetic changes underlying these developments provides new insight into general mechanisms by which genetic variation shapes phenotypic diversity. Here we describe the use of massively… 
Whole-genome resequencing reveals signatures of selection and timing of duck domestication
TLDR
Genomic comparison of wild to domesticated populations suggests that genes that affect brain and neuronal development have undergone strong positive selection during domestication, and the duck white plumage is the result of selection at the melanogenesis-associated transcription factor locus.
Genome-Wide Patterns of Genetic Variation in Two Domestic Chickens
TLDR
This study provides a framework for genetic and genomic research of domestic chickens and facilitates the domestic chicken as an avian model for genomic, biomedical, and evolutionary studies.
Strong signatures of selection in the domestic pig genome
TLDR
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.
Whole-genome resequencing of wild and domestic sheep identifies genes associated with morphological and agronomic traits
TLDR
Deep resequencing of 248 wild and domestic sheep is presented, with associated data and analysis that provides insights into the demographic history of sheep and a valuable genomic resource for future genetic studies and improved genome-assisted breeding of Sheep and other domestic animals.
Genetics of adaptation in modern chicken
TLDR
SNPs with marked allele frequency differences between wild and domestic chicken showed a highly significant deficiency in the proportion of amino-acid altering mutations, contributing to the understanding of major genetic changes that took place during the evolution of modern chickens and in poultry breeding.
Whole Genome Sequencing Highlights Genetic Changes Associated with Laboratory Domestication of C. elegans
TLDR
This study studies domestication of the C. elegans Bristol strain as a model, and reports the genome sequence of LSJ1 (Bristol), a sibling of the standard C. aristans reference wild type N2 (B Bristol), to provide a starting point to further investigate genotype-phenotype association.
Sheep genome functional annotation reveals proximal regulatory elements contributed to the evolution of modern breeds
TLDR
The data demonstrate that remodelling of gene expression is likely to have been one of the evolutionary forces that drove phenotypic diversification of this common livestock species, and show widespread evolution of proximal regulatory elements.
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.
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.
Whole-genome resequencing analysis of Pengxian Yellow Chicken to identify genome-wide SNPs and signatures of selection
TLDR
It is proposed that CTNND2 is involved in the evolutionary changes of domestic chickens toward reduced visual ability through the diopter system and VAT1 was also likely to contribute to these processes through its regulation of mitochondrial fusion.

A genetic variation map for chicken with 2.8 million single-nucleotide polymorphisms.
TLDR
This map is based on a comparison of the sequences of three domestic chicken breeds with that of their wild ancestor, red jungle fowl, and indicates that at least 90% of the variant sites are true SNPs, and at least 70% are common SNPs that segregate in many domestic breeds.

Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution
TLDR
A draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus, provides a new perspective on vertebrate genome evolution, while also improving the annotation of mammalian genomes.
Efficient mapping of mendelian traits in dogs through genome-wide association
TLDR
The development of a genotyping array with ∼27,000 SNPs is reported and it is shown that genome-wide association mapping of mendelian traits in dog breeds can be achieved with only ∼20 dogs, showing that trait mapping within dog breeds will be highly efficient and generally applicable to trait mapping.
Genetic dissection of phenotypic diversity in farm animals
TLDR
Genome research in farm animals will add to the basic understanding of the genetic control of these traits and the results will be applied in breeding programmes to reduce the incidence of disease and to improve product quality and production efficiency.
Biodiversity of 52 chicken populations assessed by microsatellite typing of DNA pools
TLDR
The distribution of population-specific (private) alleles and the amount of genetic variation shared among populations supports the hypothesis that the red jungle fowl is the main progenitor of the domesticated chicken.
Estimation of Genetic Effects and Genotype-Phenotype Maps
TLDR
This contribution facilitates the practical use of the recently published ‘NOIA’ quantitative framework by providing an implementation of linear and multilinear regressions, change of reference operation and genotype-to-phenotype mapping in a package (‘noia’) for the software R.
Genome-wide linkage analysis to identify chromosomal regions affecting phenotypic traits in the chicken. I. Growth and average daily gain.
TLDR
The results in the current study lay the foundations for fine mapping these traits in the advanced intercross lines and provide a start point for identification causative genes responsible for growth traits in chickens.
Proviral integrations and expression of endogenous Avian leucosis virus during long term selection for high and low body weight in two chicken lines
TLDR
It is concluded that only a few of the integrations contribute to the high expression levels seen in the LWS line and that high ALVE expression was significantly correlated with lower body weights for the females but not males, indicated that ALVE loci conferring high expression directly affects growth or are very closely linked to loci regulating growth.
