Ancestry analysis of locally adapted Crespa goats from southernmost Brazil

D. D. Lopes, Fernández, G. P., Poli, M., Moreira, G. R. P., Gonçalves, G. L., Freitas, T. R. O., Lopes, D. D., Fernández, G. P., Poli, M., Moreira, G. R. P., Gonçalves, G. L., and Freitas, T. R. O., Ancestry analysis of locally adapted Crespa goats from southernmost Brazil, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

Crespa goats are phenotypically similar to the Angora breed, and are traditionally reared in small, low-tech farms in southernmost Brazil. Whether they represent degenerated remnants of pure Angora goats or result from foreign breeds introduced during colonial times and recently mixed with commercial breeds is unknown.

Structure of mitochondrial DNA control region and genetic diversity of Moschus berezovskii populations in Shaanxi Province

H. Feng, Feng, C. L., Huang, Y., Tang, J., Feng, H., Feng, C. L., Huang, Y., Tang, J., Feng, H., Feng, C. L., Huang, Y., and Tang, J., Structure of mitochondrial DNA control region and genetic diversity of Moschus berezovskii populations in Shaanxi Province, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

In China, Moschus berezovskii (forest musk deer), a first-class national protected animal, was earlier widely distributed. However, wild populations of the forest musk deer have declined because of human activity and habitat loss. In order to gather useful information for its conservation and management, we investigated the genetic diversity and population structure of this species by analyzing a 632-bp fragment of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region in three wild populations in Shaanxi Province, China.
