High-resolution mitogenomics of within-species relationships can answer such phylogeographic questions as how species survived the most recent glaciation, as well as identify contemporary factors such as physical barriers, isolation, and gene flow. We examined the mitogenomic population structure of three at-risk species of wolffish: Atlantic (Anarhichas lupus), spotted (A. minor), and northern (A. denticulatus). These species are extensively sympatric across the North Atlantic but exhibit very different life history strategies, a combination that results in concordant and discordant patterns of genetic variation and structure...

The Ujumqin sheep is one of the most profitable breeds in China, with unique multi-vertebral characteristics. We performed high-throughput genome resequencing of five multi-vertebral and three non-multi-vertebral sheep in an Ujumqin population. We identified the genomic regions that correlated with the germplasm characteristics to establish the cause of the "multi-vertebral" phenotype in this breed. Sequencing generated a total of 314.952 G of raw data. The alignment rate of all the samples was between 98...

Seedlessness is a highly desirable trait in citrus varieties. Sterility is the key determination for seedlessness formation. However, the molecular basis for female sterility in seedless mandarin remains unclear. Thus, a seedless Ponkan (Citrus reticulata Blanco cv. Lipeng No. 2) considered the bud mutation of normal seedy Ponkan, was collected to identify candidate genes involved in seedless variation. Suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) screened 1091 uniESTs related to seedy/seedless Ponkan (727 singlets and 364 contigs), which mainly governed catalytic activity, transferase activity, and oxygen binding...

Compared to traditional morphological identification, DNA barcoding-molecular identification based on sequencing of a segment of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI)-provides a shortcut to authenticating chelonian identifications. Here, we selected 63 government-seized chelonian specimens deposited at Taipei Zoo for DNA barcoding analysis. DNA barcoding and subsequent phylogenetic analysis successfully authenticated 36 chelonian species, including five that are listed in CITES Appendix I. Approximately 90% (57/63) of the specimens were successfully authenticated by our molecular approach, but lack or error of BOLD reference sequences, biological processes such as hybridization, and uncertain species delimitation all reduced the accuracy of DNA barcoding...

Post-glacial origins of Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus ssp) on the island of Newfoundland and their relationship to mainland populations have been uncertain. Sequence analysis of 2,223 bp of the mitochondrial DNA Control Region and Cytochrome b gene from 233 Newfoundland caribou identified 32 haplotypes in four major clades. Comparison with other Nearctic caribou confirms a closer affinity of the basal Clade A with animals from the mainland, and as an outgroup to Clades B, C, & D that are endemic to the island...

Intramuscular fat (IMF) content and fatty acid (FA) composition vary significantly across beef cattle breeds, which play important roles in taste and nutritional value. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying these phenotypic differences remain unknown. The present study compared meat quality traits between Yunling cattle and Chinese Simmental cattle. Yunling cattle showed a lower IMF content and proportion of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), as well as higher proportions of saturated fatty acids (SFA), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and short chain fatty acids (sc-FA) in the longissimus dorsi (LD) muscle than Chinese Simmental cattle...

<i>Brachypodium distachyon</i> (n=5) is a diploid and has been widely used as a genetic model. <i>Brachypodium stacei</i> (n=10) and <i>B. hybridum</i> (n=15) are species that are related to <i>B. distachyon</i>, leading to a theory that they are part of a polyploid series based on x = 5. Several lines of evidence suggest that this hypothesis is incorrect and that the genomes of the three taxa may have evolved by a more complex process. We constructed an optical whole-genome BioNano genome (BNG) map for each species and pairwise aligned the maps together...

Although many gene expression profiling studies of maize leaves infected with Ustilago maydis have been published, heterogeneity of the results, caused by various data processing methods and pathogenic strains in different data sets, remains strong. Hence, we conducted a combined analysis of six genome-wide expression data sets of maize leaves infected with five different U. maydis strains by using the same pre-processing and quality control procedures. Six data sets were regrouped into five groups according to pathogenic strain used...

Short straw is a desired trait in cultivated hexaploid oat (Avena sativa L.) for some production environments. Marker-assisted selection, a key tool for achieving this objective, is limited by a lack of mapping data and available markers. Here, bulked-segregant analysis was used to identify PCR-based markers associated with a dwarfing gene. Genetic analysis identified a monogenic dominant inheritance of one dwarfing gene from WAOAT2132, temporarily designated DwWA. A simple sequence repeat (SSR) marker (AME117) that was already available and a new codominant PCR-based marker (bi17) developed by homologous cloning in the present study were both associated with the dwarfing gene...

The combination of two divergent genomes during hybridization can result in "genome shock". Although genome shock has been reported in the hybrids of some herbaceous plants, the pattern and the principle it follows are far from understood, especially in woody plants. Here, the gene expression patterns were remodeled in the F1 hybrid from the crossing of Camellia azalea × Camellia amplexicaulis compared with the parents as revealed by RNA-seq. About 54.5% of all unigenes were differentially expressed between the F1 hybrid and at least one of the parents, including 6404 unigenes with the highest expression level in the F1 hybrid...
