• Resequencing the Yaroslavl cattle genomes reveals signatures of selection and a rare haplotype on BTA28 likely to be related to breed phenotypes

    Abstract
    The genomes of local livestock could shed light on their genetic history, mechanisms of adaptations to environments and unique genetics. Herein we look into the genetics and adaptations of the Russian native dairy Yaroslavl cattle breed using 22 resequenced individuals and comparing them with two related breeds , and to the taurine set of the 1000 Bull Genomes Project. HapFLK analysis with Kholmogory and Holstein breeds resulted in 22 regions under selection missense mutations in the Yaroslavl genomes. These genes were enriched in the epidermal growth factor and calcium-binding...
