Estimates of genetic parameters and trends for reproduction traits in Bonga sheep, Ethiopia
Paternal Origins and Migratory Episodes of Domestic Sheep
Journal Article
October 19, 2020

The domestication and subsequent global dispersal of livestock are crucial events in human history, but the migratory episodes during the history of livestock remain poorly documented [1, 2, 3]. Here, we first developed a set of 493 novel ovine SNPs...

Historical Introgression from Wild Relatives Enhanced Climatic Adaptation and Resistance to Pneumonia in Sheep
Ethiopian indigenous goats offer insights into past and recent demographic dynamics and local adaptation in sub-Saharan African goats
Community-based sheep breeding programs generated substantial genetic gains and socioeconomic benefits
Editorial: Why Livestock Genomics for Developing Countries Offers Opportunities for Success
Individual variability among autochthonous sheep in Northern Tunisia to infection by abomasum nematodes and Babesia/Theileria parasites
Whole-genome resequencing of wild and domestic sheep identifies genes associated with morphological and agronomic traits
Increased number of large non‐atretic follicles and co‐dominance effects account for high litter sizes in Bonga sheep
Genome‑wide scans identify known and novel regions associated with prolifcacy and reproduction traits in a sub‑Saharan African indigenous sheep (Ovis aries)
Characteristics of the BMP7 Promoter in Hu Sheep
Journal Article
November 01, 2019

The BMP7 gene is involved in the growth and development of hair follicles but its regulation mechanism is unclear. We studied the regulation mechanism of the BMP7 promoter by cloning the proximal promoter of BMP7 for bioinformatics analysis. A series...
