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...

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...
