Cattle are one of the most populous farmed animals worldwide, with their global population of almost one billion second only to chickens. They provide a significant source of nutrition and livelihood to over 6 billion people. Hundreds of distinct cattle breeds have been established, displaying a diverse range of heritable phenotypes, from differences in production phenotypes such as milk yield, to environmental adaptation, disease tolerance and altered physical characteristics such as horn shape and skin pigmentation.
BOmA Cattle Browser presents data in Talenti et al., with five cattle reference genomes, the expanded ARS-UCD1.2+ genome augmented with sections of the pan-genome not present in the Hereford assembly and the results of various downstream analyses.
The genomes Angus, Hereford, Ankole, N’Dama and Brahman have the following tracks:
The genome Hereford (ARS-UCD1.2) and ARS-UCD1.2+ have the following tracks:
