Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are fatal neurodegenerative conditions of humans and various vertebrate species. Scrapie, a naturally occurring prion disease of sheep, is considered to be the prototypic TSE. The transmissible agent responsible for these conditions is a novel infectious particle referred to as a prion that is composed principally, if not solel ...

In the last few years, tremendous resources have become available for genetic researchers. These include extensive software, genomic databases containing genotype and phenotype data, and population reference panels with genotyping and next-generation sequencing data. Navigating these resources can be challenging, especially in finding the appropriate software for the analysis of data and in id ...

Plant breeding is a multidisciplinary scientific activity with tool development as driving force. It is clear from history that availability of genetic variation and selection methods are bottom lines for variety development. The genetic source of traditional plant breeding is restricted to domestication of traits from the so-called 'breeders' gene pool', consisting of crossable sources. Gene ...

Functional genomics enables agricultural researchers to investigate how gene expression and regulation contributes to complex production traits at a genome-wide level. There are many different techniques for utilizing functional genomic approaches and new high-throughput technologies are accelerating the amount and complexity of data collected from functional genomics experiments. In this revi ...

The objective of this review is to provide an overview on the most frequent health and welfare issues that could compromise the health and well-being of sows and their litters on intensive production systems. Also, some farm challenges are discussed that might to be faced by producers, veterinarians and scientists in order to promote the balance in the hard equation between welfare and product ...
