Population genomics of the Cape buffalo subspecies of the Southern African region based on SNP markers
Recent phylogeographical and population genetic studies on the African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) have revealed a complex population structure both at continental and regional scales. These studies were mainly focused on the analysis of the genetic variations of mtDNA amplicons and microsatellites molecular markers. With the advent of Next-Generation Sequencing technologies, large-scale sequencing and identification of large sets of single nucleotide polymorphism from library construction became possible. In the present study, the ‘Genotyping-by-Sequencing’ (GBS) technology was applied on 450 ...
