As usual, we would like to share some of the articles that our clients have published recently citing our software. These articles are incredibly diverse and interesting, and we hope you enjoy browsing through them.
- Fielding Hejtmancik and Lin Li of the NIH-NEI and colleagues published Homozygosity Mapping and Genetic Analysis of Autosomal Recessive Retinal Dystrophies in 144 Consanguineous Pakistani Families in iovs which was carried out to delineate the genetic architecture of arRD in the Pakistani population.
- Rebecca Bellone of the University of California – Davis, along with colleagues, published A missense mutation in damage-specific DNA binding protein 2 is a genetic risk factor for limbal squamous cell carcinoma in horses in the International Journal of Cancer which used GWAS to to identify a genetic basis for limbal SCC predisposition.
- Antonios Kominakis of the Agricultural University of Athens, along with colleagues, published Combined GWAS and ‘guilt by association’-based prioritization analysis identifies functional candidate genes for body size in sheep in Genetics Selection Evolution in which they conducted a GWAS in Frizarta dairy sheep with phenotypic data from 10 body size measurements and genotypic data.
- Rapid Communication: Subclinical bovine respiratory disease – loci and pathogens associated with lung lesions in feedlot cattle was published in the Journal of Animal Science by Holly Neibergs of Washington State University and colleagues. The objective of this study was to identify which BRD pathogens were associated with the presence of lung lesions at harvest.
- Britt Drogemoller of UBC and colleagues published Association Between SLC16A5 Genetic Variation and Cisplatin-Induced Ototoxic Effects in Adult Patients With Testicular Cancer in JAMA Oncology investigated if genetic polymorphisms contribute to the development of cisplatin-induced ototoxic effects.
- In the Journal of Dairy Science, Maja Ferencakovic of the University of Zagreb and colleagues published Genome-wide mapping and estimation of inbreeding depression of semen quality traits in a cattle population. This study analyzed possible associations of genetic features of inbreeding depression with percentage of live spermatozoa and total number of spermatozoa in 19,720 ejaculates.
