Genetic dissection of climacteric fruit ripening in a melon population segregating for ripening behavior
(Horticulture Research, 2020-11-01) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
Melon is as an alternative model to understand fruit ripening due to the coexistence of climacteric and non-climacteric varieties within the same species, allowing the study of the processes that regulate ...
Whole-genome sequencing reveals insights into the adaptation of French Charolais cattle to Cuban tropical conditions
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2021-01-04) Genètica i Millora Animal
Background: In the early 20th century, Cuban farmers imported Charolais cattle (CHFR) directly from France. These animals are now known as Chacuba (CHCU) and have become adapted to the rough environmental ...
The Identification of Runs of Homozygosity Gives a Focus on the Genetic Diversity and Adaptation of the “Charolais de Cuba” Cattle
(Animals, 2020-11-27) Genètica i Millora Animal
Inbreeding and effective population size (Ne) are fundamental indicators for the management and conservation of genetic diversity in populations. Genomic inbreeding gives accurate estimates of inbreeding, ...
Gut eukaryotic communities in pigs: diversity, composition and host genetics contribution
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-05-07) Genètica i Millora Animal; Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
Background The pig gut microbiome harbors thousands of species of archaea, bacteria, viruses and eukaryotes such as protists and fungi. However, since the majority of published studies have been focused ...
