Avian Genomics Conference and GO Annotation Workshop.

Starkville, MS, USA19-22 May 2008

  1. The genome sequence and a high-density SNP map are now available for the chicken and can be used to identify genetic markers for use in marker-assisted selection (MAS). Effective MAS requires high linkage dise...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2009 10(Suppl 2):S2
  2. Comparative genomics is an essential component of the post-genomic era. The chicken genome is the first avian genome to be sequenced and it will serve as a model for other avian species. Moreover, due to its u...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2009 10(Suppl 2):S5
  3. Systems Biology research tools, such as Cytoscape, have greatly extended the reach of genomic research. By providing platforms to integrate data with molecular interaction networks, researchers can more rapidl...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2009 10(Suppl 2):S6
  4. Proteins that selectively transport water across the membranes of cells are recognized as important in the normal functioning of the body systems of vertebrates. There are 13 known mammalian aquaporins (AQP0 t...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2009 10(Suppl 2):S7
  5. Crocodilians (Order Crocodylia) are an ancient vertebrate group of tremendous ecological, social, and evolutionary importance. They are the only extant reptilian members of Archosauria, a monophyletic group th...

    Citation: BMC Genomics 2009 10(Suppl 2):S9
  6. Genomic studies in non-domestic avian models, such as the California condor and white-throated sparrow, can lead to more comprehensive conservation plans and provide clues for understanding mechanisms affectin...
