The population of Spanish sheep has decreased from 24 to 15 million heads in the last 75 years due to multiple social and economic factors. Such a demographic reduction might have caused an increase in homozygosity and inbreeding, thus limiting the viability of local breeds with excellent adaptations to harsh ecosystems. [...]

Background: Feed efficiency (FE) has a major impact on the economic sustainability of pig production. We used a systems-based approach that integrates single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) co-association and gene-expression data to identify candidate genes, biological pathways, and potential predictors of FE in a Duroc pig population.

9 p, 1.8 MB Polymorphisms of the cryptochrome 2 and mitoguardin 2 genes are associated with the variation of lipid-related traits in Duroc pigs / Mármol-Sánchez, Emilio (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Quintanilla Aguado, Raquel (Institut de Recerca i Tecnologia Agroalimentàries) ; Cardoso, Tainã Figueiredo (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Jordana i Vidal, Jordi (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Ciència Animal i dels Aliments) ; Amills i Eras, Marcel (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
The genetic factors determining the phenotypic variation of porcine fatness phenotypes are still largely unknown. We investigated whether the polymorphism of eight genes (MIGA2, CRY2, NPAS2, CIART, ARNTL2, PER1, PER2 and PCK1), which display differential expression in the skeletal muscle of fasted and fed sows, is associated with the variation of lipid and mRNA expression phenotypes in Duroc pigs.

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.

After a strong demographic decline before World War II, wild boar populations are expanding and the species is now the second-most abundant ungulate in Europe. This increase raises concerns due to wild boar impact on crops and natural ecosystems and as potential vector of diseases. [...]

The analysis of Y-chromosome variation has provided valuable clues about the paternal history of domestic animal populations. The main goal of the current work was to characterize Y-chromosome diversity in 31 goat populations from Central Eastern (Switzerland and Romania) and Southern Europe (Spain and Italy) as well as in reference populations from Africa and the Near East.
