For comparison, we also collected 17 samples from the gayal population of the Bandarban district, a hilly region of Bangladesh.
The output at K = 2 seems plausible; it clearly distinguished the gayal from B.
In this study, we estimated genetic diversity and population structure of Bangladeshi zebu cattle populations and the semi-domesticated gayal breed by using a high-density SNP genotyping chip recently developed from indicine cattle.
05) in the gayal population, whereas the total number of monomorphic SNP makers was 3364 in the zebu population (Table 3).
Reproductive potentials of gayal (Bos frontalis) under semi-intensive management.
On the other hand, gaur (Bos gaurus) is the tallest and the largest extant wild bovine which is called Indian bison and that the semi-domesticated gayal (Bos frontalis) is very much related with the gaur (Giasuddin et al.
Growth performances in regard to average live weight gain (g/d) between gayal and native calves (Haque et al.
Phylogenetic relationships and status quo of colonies for gayal based on analysis of Cytochrome b gene partial sequences.
There might also be possible to study the molecular variants of candidate genes in these species and that could give a hint of large phenotypic variations specifically for economic, adaptive as well as fitness traits between cattle and gayal.
Physical feature, physiological character and behavior study of gayal (Bos frontalis).
ABSTRACT: The gayal (Bos frontalis) in China is a very rare semi-wild and semi-domestic bovine species.
Key Words : Gayal (Bos frontalis), Cytochrome b Gene, Molecular Phylogeny)
The gayal (Bos frontalis), also called mithan or mithun, is found in China only in the Dulong River and Nujiang River Basin in Yunnan Province, and in Menyu and Luoyu regions of the Tibet Autonomous Region where the altitude ranges between 1,500 M-4,100 M.
These data, combined with Cyt b sequences of other bovine species in GenBank, were used to perform phylogenetic analysis in order to explore the molecular phylogeny and taxonomic status of the gayal and to provide some molecular biological gist for evaluating and protecting this rare genetic resource.
The biology characteristics of gayal (Bos frontalis) and potential exploitation and utilization.
