Gentlemen gentlemen no fighting over the reference sequence.

Did the same thing on human and cdnas. It's fun.

Hopefully u get to ask for more clones, sequence source types , longer reads different chemistry and sequence sources and maybe different animals.   Thank goodness you don't have celera/ventner cheating while you do this taking credit for all your work declaring the strategy worthless but the whole time using your sequence as a backbone and verification/validation.

Make sure u contact Ron Myers lab in Alabama for tips. They are probably the best finishers in the world.

New blog post describing a new method, called Birth Date Selection Mapping, to identify genes responding to selection. We were able to show that weaning weight, milking ability, calving ease, and marbling were the traits under the strongest selection in Angus.  http://steakgenomics.blogspot.com/2012/11/birth-date-selection-mapping.html
Let me know if you have suggestions to make the blog easier to understand.

Just got around to reading some of your blog.  Had to spray some WD40 on old parts in my brain I haven't used in a while.  Glad you take the time to write it.  


If you ever get a moment for a question, I have pondered something for a while and you may be able to shed some light on it.  When I read, "Our results also suggests that the immune system is under selection in cattle."  It reminded me of it.  


It is apparent that highland cattle are much more resistant to pneumonia causing pathogens than other breeds of cattle.  Have you ran across any information suggesting this is this simply due to anatomical differences, for example something like they have a larger lung volume to body ratio vs other breeds, etc...  or is there any known evidence that they have a more aggressive or competent immune system defense.    If it is the later, I've always thought that they may hold a key to decreasing millions of dollars of losses in the cattle industry.

Unfortunately, I don't have any knowledge about pneumonia resistance in highland cattle.

The USDA has funded a grant to identify genetic variants associated with disease resistance.  http://www.brdcomplex.org/producers.html

A Steak in Genomics: You Would be Crazy Not to Test!
We take significant risks when making major purchases. Genomics allows us to gather information and reduce that risk.

No, we don't have any Chillingham DNA.
The abstract to Visscher's 2001 paper looks interesting, but I haven't had a chance to read it.
