• SNP discovery and population structure analysis in Lassi and Marecha camel breeds using a genotyping by sequencing method

    5 monthes ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    Pakistani camels have been classified socio‐geographically into 20 breeds, but they have not yet been subjected to substantial selective pressures and the genetic basis for these breeds is not understood. However, it should be possible to distinguish them by use of molecular data. This study investigated the genetic diversity and population structure within and between two major Pakistani camel breeds, Marecha and Lassi. As no SNP array is currently available, we first identified 63 619 SNPs using a genotyping by sequencing approach. After quality control, a panel of 36 926 SNPs...
