Identification of key genes and pathways associated with feed efficiency of native chickens based on transcriptome data via bioinformatics analysis.

Improving feed efficiency is one of the necessary breeding targets for poultry trade. The intention of present research was to analyze the breast muscle transcriptome data of native chickens divergent for feed efficiency. Residual feed consumption (RFI) worth was calculated for...

Genetics and breeding of a black-bone and blue eggshell chicken line. 1. Body weight, skin color, and their combined selection

An experimental inhabitants of chickens was developed from the cross between 2 indigenous Chinese breeds, Dongxiang blue eggshell and Jiangshan black-bone. This breeding was geared toward finally combining darkish heavy black-bone physique and blue eggshell, into a single dual-purpose breed. BW...

Genetic and biological characterisation of three cryptic Eimeria operational taxonomic units that infect chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus)

More than 68 billion chickens have been produced globally in 2018, emphasising their main contribution to the manufacturing of protein for human consumption, and the significance of their pathogens. Protozoan Eimeria spp. are probably the most economically important parasites of chickens,...

Transcriptome sequencing reveals genes involved in cadmium-triggered oxidative stress in the chicken heart

As a ubiquitous heavy steel, cadmium (Cd) is extremely poisonous to numerous organs. However, the results and molecular mechanism of Cd toxicity in the chicken heart stay largely unknown. The objective of our examine was to analyze the cardiac damage in...

Exploring the genetic architecture of feed efficiency traits in chickens

Chicken feed efficiency (FE) traits are the most essential financial traits in broiler manufacturing. Several research evaluating genetic elements affecting meals consumption in chickens can be found. However, most of these research recognized genomic areas containing putative quantitative trait loci for...

MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES NOMENCLATURE

For all medicines and therapeutic agents , the WHO (World Health Organization) assigns a generic name known as INN ( International Non- proprietary Name ) in order to facilitate the identification of the active pharmaceutical ingredients that comprise it. This INN is also applicable in the case of monoclonal antibodies , which are assigned...

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...

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...
