• Genetics
  • yeah we are all so inbred here in good ole ky,well be walking across the yard and fall over dead.It;s all in the genetics i guess. (topix.com)
  • No you dont want birds with a huge inbreeding coefficient but the birds that exist today are all the product of line breeding to some extent since we have an essentially closed loop with customs not allowing new genetics into the country. (backyardchickens.com)
  • organism
  • Thus outbred strains of most laboratory animals are also available, where an outbred strain is a strain of an organism that is effectively wildtype in nature, where there is as little inbreeding as possible. (wikipedia.org)
  • Certain plants including the genetic model organism Arabidopsis thaliana naturally self pollinate, which makes it quite easy to create inbred strains in the laboratory (other plants, including important genetic models such as Maize require transfer of pollen from one flower to another). (wikipedia.org)
  • traits
  • Inbreeding (i.e., breeding between closely related individuals) results in more recessive traits manifesting themselves, as the genomes of pair-mates are more similar. (wikipedia.org)
  • this very uniformity means that fewer individuals are required to produce results with the same level of statistical significance when an inbred line is used in comparison to an outbred line in the same experiment Breeding of inbred strains is often towards specific phenotypes of interest such as behavioural traits like alcohol preference or physical traits like aging. (wikipedia.org)
  • chromosome
  • Together with colleagues, Erik Puffenberger, a research scientist and laboratory director at the Clinic for Special Children in Strasburg, Pennsylvania, capitalized on the inbreeding in a large Mennonite kindred to identify the location of a gene for Hirschprung disease on chromosome 13. (encyclopedia.com)
  • In contrast to 36 other standard inbred strains, it carries a Y chromosome of Asian Mus musculus origin (c.f. (jax.org)
  • differences
  • Such strains are useful in the analysis of variance within an inbred strain or between inbred strains because any differences would be due to the single genetic change, or to a difference in environmental conditions between two individuals of the same strain, one of the more specific uses of Drosophila inbred strains are the use of Gal4/UAS lines in research. (wikipedia.org)
  • practice
  • Intellectual inbreeding or academic inbreeding is the practice in academia of a university's hiring its own graduates to be professors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Academic inbreeding has also been cited as a major problem in the major universities of the People's Republic of China-such as Peking University and Tsinghua University, which have adopted measures in recent years specifically to combat the practice-and South Korea. (wikipedia.org)
  • decrease
  • But overdominance implies that yields on an inbred strain should decrease as inbred strains are selected for the performance of their hybrid crosses, as the proportion of harmful recessives in the inbred population rises. (wikipedia.org)
  • birds
  • Pieces of DNA that predict lifespan are shorter in birds that are inbred - according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). (phys.org)
  • Nearly
  • Nearly thirty gray wolves living on an island chain in northwestern Lake Superior have backbone malformations as a result of genetic inbreeding, presenting yet another hurdle for the wolves' long-term survival, wildlife experts say. (redorbit.com)
  • results
  • The results suggest that people deliberately sought partners beyond their immediate family, and that they were probably connected to a wider network of groups within which mates were chosen, in order to avoid becoming inbred. (sooperarticles.com)
  • My wife is not inbred at all and our daughter has ROH results about the same as my wife. (zackvision.com)
  • result
  • Anyway, the skull deformities were horrid and we googled it to find that it was usually the result of inbreeding, so decided we wouldn't be doing that again and hence the purchase of some new blood lines. (backyardchickens.com)
  • genes
  • Basically, the problem with inbreeding is that it increases the risk that both male and female have the same unfavorable genes and this again increases the risk that the chicks will display these genes. (backyardchickens.com)
  • naturally
  • One type of inbred strain that either has been altered, or naturally mutated so that it is different at a single locus. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Riley says the kittens were healthy but there's concern that without new blood, eventually inbreeding could cause physical defects, such as heart problems and sterility. (yahoo.com)
  • animal
  • Saying it needed to prevent inbreeding, the Copenhagen Zoo killed a 2-year-old giraffe and fed its remains to lions as visitors watched , ignoring a petition signed by thousands and offers from other zoos and a private individual to save the animal. (yahoo.com)
  • Inbreeding is breeding between close relatives, whether plant or animal. (phys.org)
  • Beneficial changes can also come from inbreeding, and inbreeding is practiced routinely in animal breeding to enhance specific characteristics, such as milk production or low fat-to-muscle ratios in cows. (encyclopedia.com)
  • found
  • Over the years, researchers have found seven mountain lions that were the products of inbreeding, Riley said. (yahoo.com)
  • Inbred animals have fewer surviving offspring compared with others, a study of red deer in the wild has found. (phys.org)
  • horror film
  • Inbred is a 2011 British horror film directed by Alex Chandon and co-written with Paul Shrimpton and produced by Margaret Milner Schmueck. (wikipedia.org)
