Genetic isolation of breeds may result in a significant loss of diversity and have consequences on health and performance. In this study, we examined the effect of geographic isolation on caprine genetic diversity patterns by genotyping 480 individuals from 25 European and African breeds with the Goat SNP50 BeadChip and comparing patterns of homozygosity of insular and nearby continental breeds.

6 p, 1.1 MB Identification of genetic variation in the swine toll-like receptors and development of a porcine TLR genotyping array / Clop, Alex (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Huisman, Abe (Hypor BV (Països Baixos)) ; van As, Pieter (Hendrix-Genetics Corporate (Països Baixos)) ; Sharaf, Abdoallah (Jāmiʻat ʻAyn Shams) ; Derdak, Sophia (Centre Nacional d'Anàlisi Genòmica) ; Sánchez Bonastre, Armando (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
Toll-like receptors (TLR) are crucial in innate immunity for the recognition of a broad range of microbial pathogens and are expressed in multiple cell types. There are 10 TLR genes described in the pig genome. [...]

13 p, 525.1 KB Consequences of paternally inherited effects on the genetic evaluation of maternal effects / Varona, Luis (Instituto Agroalimentario de Aragón (IA2), Universidad de Zaragoza) ; Munilla, Sebastián (Departamento de Producción Animal, Facultad de Agronomía, Universidad de Buenos Aires,) ; Casellas, Joaquim (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Grup de Recerca en Remugants) ; Moreno, Carlos (Instituto Agroalimentario de Aragón (IA2), Universidad de Zaragoza) ; Altarriba, Juan (Instituto Agroalimentario de Aragón (IA2), Universidad de Zaragoza)
Mixed models are commonly used for the estimation of variance components and genetic evaluation of livestock populations. Some evaluation models include two types of additive genetic effects, direct and maternal. [...]

19 p, 156.6 KB Validation of an approximate approach to compute genetic correlations between longevity and linear traits / Tarrés, Joaquim (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Grup de Recerca en Remugants) ; Piedrafita, Jesús (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Grup de Recerca en Remugants) ; Ducrocq, Vincent (Station de génétique quantitative et appliquée, Institut national de la recherche agronomique)
The estimation of genetic correlations between a nonlinear trait such as longevity and linear traits is computationally difficult on large datasets. A two-step approach was proposed and was checked via simulation. [...]

8 p, 69.1 KB Estimating the frequency of Asian cytochrome B haplotypes in standard European and local Spanish pig breeds. / Clop Ponte, Àlex (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Ciència Animal i dels Aliments) ; Amills i Eras, Marcel (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Ciència Animal i dels Aliments) ; Noguera, José Luís ; Fernández, Ana ; Capote, Juan ; Ramón, Maria Misericòrdia ; Kelly, Lucía ; Kijas, James MH ; Andersson, Leif ; Sànchez, Armand (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Ciència Animal i dels Aliments)
Mitochondrial DNA has been widely used to perform phylogenetic studies in different animal species. In pigs, genetic variability at the cytochrome B gene and the D-loop region has been used as a tool to dissect the genetic relationships between different breeds and populations. [...]
