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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...
