It’s always exciting to read the latest articles our clients have published, and this month there are some unique topics. Learn more about the genomics of raccoon dogs and cattle tissue infection in some of the articles highlighted below!
- Holly Neibergs of Washington State University and colleagues published Identification of loci associated with susceptibility to Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) tissue infection in cattle in the Journal of Animal Science. The objective of this study was to validate previous GWAS results and also identify new loci associated with Map tissue infection.
- Brian Ference of Wayne State University and colleagues published Variation in PCSK9 and HMGCR and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes in the New England Journal of Medicine which compared the effect of lower LDL cholesterol levels that were mediated by specific variants of the risk of CD and diabetes.
- Beyond the MHC: A canine model of dermatomyositis shows a complex pattern of genetic risk involving novel loci was published in PLOS Genetics by Leigh Anne Clark of Clemson University and colleagues in which the team investigated the genetic underpinnings of dermatomyositis in dogs.
- Ettore Randi of the Institute for Environmental Protection and Research, along with colleagues, published Population genomics of the raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Denmark: insights into invasion history and population development in Biological Invasions. The team studied the population genomics of 190 individual raccoon dogs to explain their origin and genetic patterns.
- In Experimental and Molecular Pathology, Jason Peterson of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and colleagues published Variant call concordance between two laboratory-developed, solid tumor targeted genomic profiling assays using distinct workflows and sequencing instruments in which the team validated a TGP assay for solid tumors.
