Genes Affecting Coat Colour And The Resulting Variation In Horses (equus Caballus) – A Review
Horse colour is important. People chose horses for their colour pattern diversity, according to archaeological investigations and biological evidence. Horses were generally dark coloured before domestication, according to molecular testing. After domestication, the genes for white patterns and dilutions appeared. The appearance of their horses, as well as their... Continue here

Overview Of Methodology For Studying Dna Methylation: A Review
DNA methylation is the addition of a methyl group to the 5th carbon atom of cytosine in a CpG dinucleotide. It is a mechanism that causes a change in expression without altering the base sequence. It is associated with a wide range of biological processes, including deactivation of chromosome X, genomic imprinting, stem cell differentiation, gene expression... Continue here

Relationships Amongst Carcass Traits In Some Breeds Of Domestic Rabbit (oryctolagus Cuniculus) Bucks
