    • The Origins and Vulnerabilities of Two Transmissible Cancers in Tasmanian Devils. 

      Stammnitz, Maximilian; Coorens, Tim HH; Gori, Kevin Charles; Hayes, Dane; Fu, Beiyuan; Wang, Jinhong; Martin-Herranz, Daniel E et al. (Elsevier, 2018-04)
      Transmissible cancers are clonal lineages that spread through populations via contagious cancer cells. Although rare in nature, two facial tumor clones affect Tasmanian devils. Here we perform comparative genetic and ...
    • The pig X and Y Chromosomes: structure, sequence, and evolution 

      Skinner, Benjamin Matthew; Sargent, Carole Anne; 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 CY; 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 ...
