  • Genetic characterization of dog personality traits 

    Ilska-Warner J; Haskell MJ; Blott SC; Sanchez-Molano E; Polgar Z; Lofgren SE; Clements DN; Wiener P (2017)
    Personality or individual consistency in behavioural responsiveness to stimuli and situations, is recognized in a wide range of animal species, including dogs. These traits are important for determining how well a dog fits ...
  • Genomic data illuminates demography, genetic structure and selection of a popular dog breed 

    Wiener P; Sanchez-Molano E; Clements DN; Woolliams JA; Haskell MJ; Blott SC (2017)
    Background Genomic methods have proved to be important tools in the analysis of genetic diversity across the range of species and can be used to reveal processes underlying both short- and long-term evolutionary change. ...
  • Genomic regions underlying susceptibility to bovine tuberculosis in Holstein-Friesian cattle 

    Raphaka K; Matika O; Sanchez-Molano E; Mrode R; Coffey MP; Riggio V; Glass EJ; Woolliams JA; Bishop SC; Banos G (2017)
    Background The significant social and economic loss as a result of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) presents a continuous challenge to cattle industries in the UK and worldwide. However, host genetic variation in cattle ...
  • Genomic-based optimum contribution in conservation and genetic improvement programs with antagonistic fitness and productivity traits 

    Sanchez-Molano E; Pong-Wong R; Banos G (2016)
    Animal selection for genetic improvement of productivity may lead to an increase in inbreeding through the use of techniques that enhance the reproductive capability of selected animals. Therefore, breeding strategies ...
  • Management and personality in Labrador Retriever dogs 

    Lofgren SE; Wiener P; Blott SC; Sanchez-Molano E; Woolliams JA; Clements DN; Haskell MJ (2014)
    Canine personality is of keen interest to dog owners and researchers alike. The regular human contact with them makes dogs an ideal species to use in the investigation of animal personality. This study specifically focused ...
  • A practical approach to detect ancestral haplotypes in livestock populations 

    Sanchez-Molano E; Tsiokos D; Chatziplis D; Jorjani H; Degano L; Diaz C; Rossoni A; Schwarzenbacher H; Seefried F; Varona L; Vicario D; Nicolazzi EL; Banos G (2016)
    Background The effects of different evolutionary forces are expected to lead to the conservation, over many generations, of particular genomic regions (haplotypes) due to the development of linkage disequilibrium (LD). ...
