Genome-wide association study provides insights into genes related with horn development in Nelore beef cattle.
Abstract The causal mutation for polledness in Nelore (Bos taurus indicus) breed seems to have appeared first in Brazil in 1957. The expression of the polled trait is known to be ruled by a few groups... ...
Autozygosity islands and ROH patterns in Nellore lineages: evidence of selection for functionally important traits.
Autoria: PERIPOLLI, E.; METZGER, J.; LEMOS, M. V. A. de; STAFUZZA, N. B.; KLUSKA, S.; OLIVIERI, B. F.; FEITOSA, F. L. B.; BERTON, M. P.; LOPES, F. B.; MUNARI, D. P.; LOBO, R. B.; ; DI CROCE, F.; OSTERSTOCK, J.; DENISE, S.; PEREIRA, A. S. C.; BALDI, F.
Abstract Background The aim of this study was to assess genome-wide autozygosity in a Nellore cattle population and to characterize ROH patterns and autozygosity islands that may have occurred due to... ...
Assessment of runs of homozygosity islands and estimates of genomic inbreeding in Gyr (Bos indicus) dairy cattle.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Runs of homozygosity (ROH) are continuous homozygous segments of the DNA sequence. They have been applied to quantify individual autozygosity and used as a potential inbreeding me... ...
Study on the introgression of beef breeds in canchim cattle using single nucleotide polymorphism markers.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of introgression of breeds in the Canchim (CA: 62.5% Charolais?37.5% Zebu) and MA genetic group (MA: 65.6% Charolais?34.4% Zebu) cattle using genomic in... ...
Single nucleotide variants and InDels identified from whole-genome re-sequencing of Guzerat, Gyr, Girolando and Holstein cattle breeds.
Whole-genome re-sequencing, alignment and annotation analyses were undertaken for 12 sires representing four important cattle breeds in Brazil: Guzerat (multi-purpose), Gyr, Girolando and Holstein (da... ...
