    Centre for Biostructural and Biomedical Research University of Western Sydney, Hawkesbury, Richmond 2753, NSW Australia
    Mol Ecol 12:789-94. 2003
    ..These results highlight the importance of population growth following a demographic bottleneck, which largely determines the severity of genetic loss...

    Kyall R Zenger
    Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, Sydney, New South Wales 2109, Australia
    Genetics 162:321-30. 2002
    ..When comparing the X chromosome data to closely related species it is apparent that they are conserved in both synteny and gene order...
  3. ncbi request reprint Intraspecific variation, sex-biased dispersal and phylogeography of the eastern grey kangaroo (Macropus giganteus)
    K R Zenger
    Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, NSW 2109, Australia
    Heredity (Edinb) 91:153-62. 2003
    ..Phylogenetic comparisons between M. g. giganteus and M. g. tasmaniensis indicated that the current taxonomic status of these subspecies should be revised as there was a lack of genetic differentiation between the populations sampled...

    K R Zenger
    Co operative Research Centre for Innovative Dairy Products, Centre for Advanced Technologies in Animal Genetics and Reproduction REPROGEN, University of Sydney, Camden, NSW, Australia
    Anim Genet 38:7-14. 2007
    ..These results indicate that inbreeding, genetic drift and selection has had little effect at reducing genetic diversity and differentiating the Australian Holstein Friesian population at a genome-wide level...
  5. pmc A primary assembly of a bovine haplotype block map based on a 15,036-single-nucleotide polymorphism panel genotyped in holstein-friesian cattle
    Mehar S Khatkar
    Centre for Advanced Technologies in Animal Genetics and Reproduction REPROGEN, University of Sydney, Camden NSW 2570, Australia
    Genetics 176:763-72. 2007
    ..Overall, the results suggest that as many as 75,000-100,000 tag SNPs would be needed to track all important haplotype blocks in the bovine genome. This would require approximately 250,000 SNPs in the discovery phase...

    Linda E Neaves
    Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, NSW, Australia
