Progress in artificial selection: ETAS analysis identifies agronomic genes
Elite varieties that have gone through long term breeding have probably fixed some elite alleles that occur with low frequencies in ancestral gene pool. Those elite alleles contribute to the elite performance of the elite varieties. Traditionally, geneticists use quantitative trait loci (QTL) linkage mapping and association mapping to identify those elite agronomic genes. However, QTL mapping requires constructing...
First Goat Genome Sets a Good Example for Facilitating De Novo Assembly of Large Genomes
Dec. 23, 2012 — In a collaborative study published online today in Nature Biotechnology, researchers from Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, BGI, and other institutes, have completed the first genome sequence of domestic goat by a robust approach integrated with next-generation sequencing (NGS) and whole-genome mapping (WGM) technologies. The goat genome is the first reference genome for s...

Watch Out！Indels may play tricks on your phylogenetic results
In evolutionary studies, insertion and deletion events (indels) are of importance. Indels refers to the mutation class that includes both insertions, deletions, and the combination, thereof, including insertion and deletion events that may be separated by many years. But, attribute to its’ enormous potential in variation,including lack of functional constraints, a high substitution rate and less homoplasy, indels...
