Turkey Genome Sequenced More Than 90 Percent, Including Sex Chromosomes 'Z' and 'W'
An international consortium of researchers has completed the majority of the genome sequence of the domesticated turkey, thanks in part to the efforts of Virginia Tech faculty members. The genome sequence will provide scientists with knowledge of specific genes that are important in meat yield and quality, health and disease resistance, fertility, and reproduction.
