Population structure of 3907 worldwide pigs and the introgression of Chinese indigenous pigs by European pigs

9 days ago   |   By Animal Genetics

Abstract
With the improvement in sequencing technology and the decrease in sequencing cost, increasing amounts of genomic data for pigs have been uploaded to public databases. However, no researchers have to date integrated all currently available data to uncover the global genetic status of pigs. Meanwhile, little is known about the introgression from European to Chinese pigs and its underlying influences. Therefore, we integrated the effective genotype data of 3907 pigs from 193 populations worldwide using population genetic analysis, gene flow analysis and a sharing-IBD study. These...

White-gaped Honeyeaters

The White-gaped Honeyeater - Stomiopera unicolor is common around Broome, but you find them mostly alone and not with others of the same species. They are generally a vocal... Read more ...

Aramus the Limpkin

As it walks in its marshy habitat, its ungainly stride makes it look as if the bird is limping, hence the common name of Limpkin. Aramus , the genus name, comes from the Greek... Read more ...
