  1. Positive and negative gestational handling influences placental traits and mother-offspring behavior in dairy goats

    Contributor(s):: Baxter, E. M., Mulligan, J., Hall, S. A., Donbavand, J. E., Palme, R., Aldujaili, E., Zanella, A. J., Dwyer, C. M.

    Dairy animals are subjected to a number of potential stressors throughout their lives, including daily interactions with humans. The quality of these interactions may have direct consequences for the animal undergoing the experience, but if such events occur during gestation it may also affect...

  3. Transgenic Animals: Their Benefits to Human Welfare

    Contributor(s):: Endang Tri Margawati

    Nowadays, breakthroughs in molecular biology are happening at an unprecedented rate. One of them is the ability to engineer transgenic animals, i.e., animals that carry genes from other species. The technology has already produced transgenic animals such as mice, rats, rabbits, pigs, sheep, and...

  4. Determining the antiquity of dog origins: canine domestication as a model for the consilience between molecular genetics and archaeology

    Contributor(s):: Michelle Jeanette Raisor

    Archaeologists have favored a date of 14,000-15,000 years before present (BP) for canine domestication. However, recent studies of mutations in the mitochondrial DNA sequence by molecular geneticists have implied that dogs were domesticated over 100,000 years ago, which has challenged...

  5. Zoonotic Transmission of Influenza H9 subtype through Reassortment

    Contributor(s):: James Brian Kimble

    Influenza A virus causes disease across a broad host range including avian and mammalian species. Most influenza viruses are found in wild aquatic birds, are of low consequence and refrain from zoonotic transmission. However, some strains occasionally cross the species barrier, into domestic...

  6. Genetic differences for behaviour in juveniles from two strains of brown trout suggest an effect of domestication history

    Contributor(s):: Benhaim, D., Guyomard, R., Chatain, B., Quillet, E., Begout, M. L.
