Several of our customers have published recently using our SVS software, and I wanted to share their work with you. Congrats to all! Here are some of the highlights:
- Francesca Fernandez of the University of Wollongong along with colleagues published Effects of common GRM5 genetic variants on cognition, hippocampal volume and mGluR5 protein levels in schizophrenia in Brain Imaging and Behavior which examined the effects of common genetic variation in GRM5 with cognitive function, hippocampal volume and hippocampal mGluR5 protein levels in schizophrenia patients relative to healthy controls.
- In iovs, Bethany Kloss and colleagues published Exome Sequence Analysis of 14 Families With High Myopia which aimed to identify causal gene mutations in 14 families with autosomal dominant (AD) high myopia using exome sequencing.
- Nathalie Bissonnette of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, along with colleagues, published Low-depth genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) in a bovine population: strategies to maximize the selection of high quality genotypes and the accuracy of imputation in BMC Genetics. This study compared an alternative GBS preparation protocol with the conventional two-enzyme GBS protocol.
- Low Variability and Stable Frequency of Common Haplotypes of the TP53 Gene Region in Colorectal Cancer Patients in a Slovak Population was published in Anticancer Research by Maria Skerenova of Comenius University and colleagues, and it aimed to test the association between common TP53 halotypes and colorectal cancer development.
- Dan Nonneman of the USDA and colleagues published Evaluation of functional variation in candidate genes for pork quality in the Journal of Animal Science which used a commercial population to evaluate potential functional variation in candidate genes identified in a GWAS for pork quality in the USMARC Swine herd.
- In BMC Genetics, Bertram Brenig of the University of Gottingen, along with colleagues, published A genome-wide association study reveals a locus for bilateral iridal hypopigmentation in Holstein Friesian cattle. The aim of the study was the description of the phenotype, the identification of pigmentation alterations in the eye of affected cattle and the determination of the underlying genetics of iridal hypopigmentation in cattle.
