Skip to comments.New technique delivers complete DNA sequences of chromosomes inherited from mother and father

An international team of scientists led by the University of Adelaide's Davies Research Centre has shown that it is possible to disentangle the DNA sequences of the chromosomes inherited from the mother and the father, to create true diploid genomes from a single individual.
In a report published in Nature Communications, and funded by the Davies Research Centre over the past 15 years, the researchers have shown that genomes of two important modern-day cattle breeds, Angus (Bos taurus taurus) and Brahman (Bos taurus indicus), can be completely decoded from a single hybrid individual carrying the genetics of both breeds, using an innovative genome assembly strategy.
Although demonstrated in cattle, the approach is applicable to other species including humans...
Obtaining a full genome from an organism that inherits half the chromosomes from the mother and the other half from the father is difficult due to the high similarity between the parental chromosomes...
Brahman and Angus cattle subspecies were domesticated separately thousands of years ago and have been subjected to very different selection pressures since then; pest and humid environments in the case of the Brahman cattle and beef production in Angus cattle. These different characteristics and histories are reflected in their genomes, which makes them ideal test subjects.
Indian breeds such as Brahman cattle are better able to regulate body temperature and are routinely crossed with European breeds such as Angus to produce cattle that are better adapted to tropical climates.
Considering the large differences in production and adaptation traits between taurine and indicine cattle, comparing the genomes helps us understand how the animals adapt to their environment, which is of substantial scientific and economic interest.

When they do a complete DNA sequences of chromosomes on liberals they find parts are missing.
Only works if father can be found?
Properly employed by hospitals at birth, the claims for welfare that the mother knows not the father will soon lead to criminal referrals against the men who rape young girls....
Right-we always knew they were not fully evolved.
You are not the father!
The bad news is that you are a steer.
they already have found identical twins with different DNA sequences.
I wonder if this will end the differences. If not, then what?
Can Obama find his white half?
Yeah, and it could disentangle the DNA from a preborn child too if only they had the guts to accept that preborns have chromosomes inherited from the father as well as from the mother.
So if you get the mother’s and father’s, can you unscramble each of them . . . and so on . . . back to Adam?
The results of those tests will be announced to kick off Half-Black History Month.
Now they can clone the dad to collect Child Payments.
Moo Moo Baa Baa
I have some second cousins twice removed who are identical twins. According to MyHeritage, they share 99.9% of their DNA. For some reason MyHeritage thinks they are the same person instead of recognizing that there are identical twins out there.
hey...thanx for that. and that’s kinda whacky...
We use Ancestry and 23andme.

Interesting that they have found twins where one lists an ancestor that the other doesn’t.
I wonder if this new re-sequencing technique will take of that.
