      Nie, Wenhui; O’Brien, Patricia C M; Fu, Beiyuan; Wang, Jinghuan; Su, Weiting; He, Kai; Bed’Hom, Bertrand et al. (2015-09-26)
      Abstract Background Previous cross-species painting studies with probes from chicken (Gallus gallus) chromosomes 1–10 and a paint pool of nineteen microchromosomes have revealed ...
    • The pig X and Y Chromosomes: structure, sequence, and evolution 

      Skinner, Benjamin M.; Sargent, Carole A.; Churcher, Carol; Hunt, Toby; Herrero, Javier; Loveland, Jane E.; Dunn, Matt et al. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2015-11-11)
      We have generated an improved assembly and gene annotation of the pig X Chromosome, and a first draft assembly of the pig Y Chromosome, by sequencing BAC and fosmid clones from Duroc animals and incorporating information ...
    • Sequence of a complete chicken BG haplotype shows dynamic expansion and contraction of two gene lineages with particular expression patterns 

      Salomonsen, Jan; Chattaway, John A.; Chan, Andrew C. Y.; Parker, Aimée; Huguet, Samuel; Marston, Denise A.; Rogers, Sally L. et al. (PLOS, 2014-06-05)
      Many genes important in immunity are found as multigene families. The butyrophilin genes are members of the B7 family, playing diverse roles in co-regulation and perhaps in antigen presentation. In humans, a fixed number ...
