Genetic signature of hybridization between Chinese spot‐billed ducks and domesticated ducks

6 monthes ago   |   By Animal Genetics

Summary
In this study, we analyzed 93 whole genomes from Chinese spot‐billed ducks , meat‐type ducks , and egg and dual purpose‐type ducks to characterize the genetic material flowing between the CSB and modern ducks. Using a frequency of shared identical‐by‐descent method, approximately 10.9 Mb introgression segments containing 140 genes were identified showing the signatures of introgression between CSB and EDT. Meanwhile, nearly 10.6 M introgression regions containing 149 genes were identified between CSB and MET. Based on the haplotypes tree of each segment, we found that the...
