Comparison among three variant callers and assessment of the accuracy of imputation from SNP array data to whole-genome sequence level in chicken.

Comparison among three variant callers and assessment of the accuracy of imputation from SNP array data to whole-genome sequence level in chicken.

BACKGROUNDThe technical progress in the final decade has made it attainable to sequence tens of millions of DNA reads in a comparatively quick time-frame. Several variant callers primarily based on totally different algorithms have emerged and have made it attainable to extract single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) out of the whole-genome sequence. Often, only some people …

Prevalence of Salmonella Isolates and Their Distribution Based on Whole-Genome Sequence in a Chicken Slaughterhouse in Jiangsu, China.

Prevalence of Salmonella Isolates and Their Distribution Based on Whole-Genome Sequence in a Chicken Slaughterhouse in Jiangsu, China.

Salmonella has been referred to as a very powerful foodborne pathogen, which might infect people through consuming contaminated meals. Chicken meat has been referred to as an essential car to transmit Salmonella by the meals provide chain. This examine decided the prevalence, antimicrobial resistance, and genetic traits of Salmonella at totally different rooster slaughtering levels in East China. In whole, …

New Insights From Imputed Whole-Genome Sequence-Based Genome-Wide Association Analysis and Transcriptome Analysis: The Genetic Mechanisms Underlying Residual Feed Intake in Chickens.

New Insights From Imputed Whole-Genome Sequence-Based Genome-Wide Association Analysis and Transcriptome Analysis: The Genetic Mechanisms Underlying Residual Feed Intake in Chickens.

Poultry feed constitutes the most important price in poultry manufacturing, estimated to be as much as 70% of the whole price. Moreover, there’s strain on the poultry business to extend manufacturing to fulfill the protein demand of people and concurrently scale back emissions to guard the surroundings. Therefore, enhancing feed effectivity performs an essential function …

Notes on Nomenclature

At the Gene Mapping Workshop held during the 22nd Conference of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) held in East Lansing, Michigan, USA it was resolved unanimously that animal gene nomenclature should “follow the rules for human gene nomenclature, including the use of identical symbols for homologous genes and the reservation of human symbols …

Using ARKdb

ARKdb can be queried in a number of ways. The main ways of querying are by locus/marker, by published reference or by map. You can also query by clone or library, although these tend to be less well-used areas of the system. Each species database is accessed in the same way. Brief details of the …

History of ARKdb

ARKdb arose initially from the needs of a project co-ordinated at Roslin Institute to map the pig genome. The original intention was to utilise the Jackson Laboratory’s then current mouseGBASE database design, and this was actually implemented for pigs, chickens and sheep. However, it soon became clear that the nature of genome mapping in farmed …
