A species-diagnostic SNP panel for discriminating lodgepole pine, jack pine, and their interspecific hybridsDownload
Accurate stock identification is important for forest management, yet this can be a challenge for tree species that hybridize naturally. Species discriminating molecular markers provide a means to identify stock with high accuracy. In Canada, lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud. var....
Improving feed efficiency has become a top priority in beef cattle production because of the rapidly increasing cost of feed provision. However, because of the expense associated with collecting individual animal feed intake data, only a relatively small number of animals have been tested,...
Assessing the Feasibility of Learning Biomedical Phenotype Patterns Using High-Throughput Omics ProfilesDownload
A decade after the completion of the human genome project, the rapid advancement of the high-throughput measurement technologies has made omics (genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics) profiling feasible. The availability of such omics profiles has raised the hope for the...
Association analyses of SNPs in candidate genes with body fat deposition and carcass merit traits in beef cattleDownload
A candidate gene approach was used to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and their associations with body fat deposition and carcass merit traits in beef cattle. In total, 37 SNPs from 9 candidate genes have been genotyped on 463 hybrid, 206 Angus and 187 Charolais steers for...
Identification of Shared and Distinct Gene-disease Associations Among Multiple Related Diseases and Multiple Subtypes of a DiseaseDownload
Genome-wide association study (GWAS) is an approach with high-throughput genotyping to uncover genetic susceptibilities of complex diseases. However, the genetic susceptibilities discovered usually carry very small risk increments. Additionally, the current approach to assess whether these...
Mapping QTLs for different traits in conventional and organic management systems and evaluating the effects of Lr34/Yr18 and Lr37/Yr17 in a Canadian western hard spring wheat populationDownload
Canadian western red spring wheat (CWRS) has been predominantly cultivated class in Western Canada, because of its premium quality attributes and excellent adaptability to the relatively short growing season. Early maturity, short plant stature, higher grain yield, protein content and dough...
New insights about barnacle reproduction: Spermcast mating, aerial copulation and population genetic consequencesDownload
Barnacles are mostly hermaphroditic and they are believed to mate via copulation or, in a few species, by self-fertilization. However, isolated individuals of two species that are thought not to self-fertilize, Pollicipes polymerus and Balanus glandula, nonetheless carried fertilized...
The Effect of Mutations in Stearoyl CoA Desaturase Gene and Fatty Acid Synthase on Milk Composition and Fatty Acid Profile in Milk Fat of Dairy CowsDownload
The effects of diet on milk fatty acid profile, including conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) have been well documented, however, there is limited information on the interaction of diet with genetics. The objective of this research was to determine the effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)...
