Our major interests lie in the Agriculture animals and their genomic and genic changes in domestication process, especially for the ruminant livestock, such as sheep, goats and cattle. In order to explore the agronomic traits related genes, explain their molecular mechanism then support breeding, we generate and assembly the pan-genome of all kinds of livestock, re-sequencing more breeds and their wild relatives, get large-scale re-sequencing and RNA-seq data for comparative genomics analysis. We search all of the variations, such as SNPs and CNVs. Then using GWAS studies combined with multiple evolutionary and comparative genomics tools and methods, we try to get the key genomic regions under artificial or nature selection and focus on feed efficiency and environment adaptation related/causative variations.
