  1. 1. Evolutionary Studies of the Mammalian Y Chromosome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda Hellborg; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Y chromosome; field vole; cattle; selection; primer design; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Sex chromosomes are useful in elucidating the evolutionary factors affecting diversity and divergence. In particular, Y chromosome analyses may complement studies using mitochondrial DNA for inferring sex-specific population genetic processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of the origin and spread of the domestic dog using Y-chromosome DNA and mtDNA sequence data

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mattias Oskarsson; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mtDNA; domestication; Y-chromosome; SNP; ASY; dog; dingo;

    Abstract : The domestic dog was probably the first domesticated animal, and the only one to spread to all continents in ancient times. The dog is one of the most phenotypically diverse animals, a result of human selection throughout dog history. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genome mapping of the horse

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gabriella Lindgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Horse; microsatellites; linkage analysis; FISH; Type I markers; BAc library; Y chromosome; Utvecklingsbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi; Evolutionary Genetics; evolutionär genetik;

    Abstract : Our ability to map and sequence whole genomes is one of the most important developments in biological science. It will provide us with an unprecedented insight into the genetic background of phenotypic traits, such as disease resistance, reproduction and growth and also makes it feasible to study the processes of genome evolution.

  5. 5. Conservation Genetics of Wolves and their Relationship with Dogs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna-Karin Sundqvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Molecular genetics; mtDNA; Y chromosome; microsatellites; breed; hybridization; domestication; introgression; predation; Genetik; Canis lupus; Canis familiaris;

    Abstract : Management of wolves is a complex issue, and molecular genetics is an important tool in this work. Molecular genetics can provide important information at the species, population and individual level, which can be essential for the development of management programs aiming at the long term survival of wolf populations.
