TitleNGS-based reverse genetic screen for common embryonic lethal mutations compromising fertility in livestock
Study TypeOther
Abstract We herein report the result of a large-scale, next generation sequencing (NGS)-based screen for embryonic lethal (EL) mutations in Belgian beef and New Zealand dairy cattle. We estimated by simulation that cattle might carry on average ~0.5 recessive EL mutations. We mined exome sequence data from .. [more]
