– ‘This study shows a significant amount of variation, Tashaan genomes. Between the individual dogs at the genomic level, ‘says Kirkness, lead investigator of the project, funded by TIGR. ‘That variation exploited to exploited to the differences between dogs to examine their diseases, development and behavior. ‘Generally Kirkness adds, the comparisons reveal evolutionary influences that can shape mammalian genomes.. In the December issue of Genome Research – a special issue devoted to dog genomes – TIGR researchers Ewen Kirkness and Wei Wang compared the genome sequences of two dogs, a poodle and a boxer. Find key genetic differences between the two dogs, the on on these telltale genetic variations in the genomes of nine compare additional dog breeds – beagle, Labrador retriever, German shepherd, Italian greyhound, German shepherd, Bedlington terrier, Portuguese water dog, Alaskan malamute and rottweiler – and five genomes of wild canids .
This work includes a high-resolution map of the dog single nucleotide polymorphisms , based largely on a comparison of the boxer and poodle sequences. For the animals.s predicts that efforts to genetic differences between dogs is documented health gains health gains for the animals. And maybe us: A dog genome is estimated that approximately 19,300 genes – nearly all corresponding similar human genes.. In the second study, in the 8th December edition was published in Nature, researchers from 15 institutions describe a high-resolution draft of the boxer genome. (more…)
