- ... BACKGROUND: Sex-linked slow (SF) and fast (FF) feathering rates at hatch have been widely used in poultry breeding for autosexing at hatch. In chicken, the sex-linked K (SF) and k+ (FF) alleles are responsible for the feathering rate phenotype. Allele K is dominant and a partial duplication of the prolactin receptor gene has been identified as the causal mutation. Interestingly, some domesticated ...

- ... The turkey sperm glycocalyx is known to contain residues of sialic acid, α-mannose/α-glucose, α- and β-galactose, α-fucose, α- and β-N-acetyl-galactosamine, monomers and dimers of N-acetyl-glucosamine, and N-acetyl-lactosamine. Potential changes in these carbohydrates during in vitro semen storage at 4°C were evaluated using males of both high- and low-sperm-mobility phenotypes. Changes in carbohy ...

- ... A synergistic combination of two next-generation sequencing platforms with a detailed comparative BAC physical contig map provided a cost-effective assembly of the genome sequence of the domestic turkey (Meleagris gallopavo). Heterozygosity of the sequenced source genome allowed discovery of more than 600,000 high quality single nucleotide variants. Despite this heterozygosity, the current genome ...
