Pleiotropic genes affecting carcass traits in bos indicus (Nellore) cattle are modulators of growth
(PLoS ONE, 2016-07-01) [Artigo]
Two complementary methods, namely Multi-Trait Meta-Analysis and Versatile Gene-Based Test for Genome-wide Association Studies (VEGAS), were used to identify putative pleiotropic genes affecting carcass traits in Bos indicus ...
Revisiting AFLP fingerprinting for an unbiased assessment of genetic structure and differentiation of taurine and zebu cattle
(BMC Genetics, 2014-04-17) [Artigo]
Background: Descendants from the extinct aurochs (Bos primigenius), taurine (Bos taurus) and zebu cattle (Bos indicus) were domesticated 10,000 years ago in Southwestern and Southern Asia, respectively, and colonized the ...
GHap: An R package for genome-wide haplotyping
(Bioinformatics, 2016-09-15) [Artigo]
The GHap R package was designed to call haplotypes from phased marker data. Given user-defined haplotype blocks (HapBlock), the package identifies the different haplotype alleles (HapAllele) present in the data and scores ...
Association of Copy Number Variation at Intron 3 of HMGA2 With Navel Length in Bos indicus
(Frontiers In Genetics, 2018-12-07) [Artigo]
Navel injuries caused by friction against the pasture can promote infection, reproductive problems and costly treatments in beef cattle raised in extensive systems. A haplotype-based genome-wide association study (GWAS) ...
Combining Landscape Genomics and Ecological Modelling to Investigate Local Adaptation of Indigenous Ugandan Cattle to East Coast Fever
(Frontiers In Genetics, 2018-10-03) [Artigo]
East Coast fever (ECF) is a fatal sickness affecting cattle populations of eastern, central, and southern Africa. The disease is transmitted by the tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, and caused by the protozoan Theileria ...
