Latest Bovine genome Stories
The cattle genome has now been mapped to a hitherto unknown degree of detail. This constitutes a quantum leap for research into the history and genetics of cattle.
The Y chromosomes of cattle have more genes and are more active than the Y chromosomes of other primates, according to researchers.
A U.S.-led international consortium of scientists says it has sequenced the bovine genome, showing the genetic features that separate cattle from humans. The six-year effort has produced the first full genome sequence of any ruminant species, officials said, consisting of at least 22,000-protein coding genes and is more similar to that of humans than to the genomes of mice or rats. University of Illinois Professor Harris Lewin said the cattle genome appears to have been significantly...
Scientists from the University of Maryland have published a new version of the genome of the domestic cow, known as Bos Taurus, which considerably improves previous assemblies in terms of accuracy and totality.
