TitleEIF2S2 retroposition underlies fleece variation in sheep through the formation of dsRNA
Study TypeOther
Abstract Fleece variation, in composition and structure, observed in mammals is a consequence of a strong selective pressure for fiber production after domestication. Wild species with double coated fleece produced a variety of breeds with single coated fleece. In sheep, these two categories discriminate pri .. [more]
