    Summary
    Bohai Black cattle, one of eight representative indigenous breeds in China, is well known for its high resistance to disease, endurance under unfavorable feeding conditions and excellent meat quality. Over recent, the number of BHB cattle has decreased sharply. To investigate the population structure and genetic diversity of this breed, the whole-genome data of 35 individuals from a conservation farm were obtained using the Illumina 150 bp paired-end platform. The results of the genetic structure and diversity analyses showed that BHB cattle had mixed Bos taurus and Bos indicus...
