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 ...
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 ...
