Genomic diversity and Population Structure of Ugandan Taurine and Zebuine Cattle Breeds

An extensive sampling of Ugandan cattle was carried out in the course of the European project Nextgen to identify possible associations between genotypes, livestock endemic diseases and environmental variables. As a prior to the GWAS and selection signatures analyses planned within the project, we analyzed the population structure of Ugandan cattle genotyped with both 54K and 800K HD SNP panels in the context of the worldwide cattle genomic diversity.
