According to the study, two distinct clades arose within the species at different times, supporting a pattern of repeated expansion and localized extinction.

Researchers used the system to precisely deplete mRNA transcripts in zebrafish embryos and showed that it can also be used in medaka, killifish, and mouse.

The deal follows a number of recent acquisitions in the animal genomics space for Neogen including Canadian animal genomics firm Delta Genomics Centre.

The companies will combine their respective technologies to offer genomic services for the plant and animal breeding sectors.

Researchers focused in on strong candidate genes in schizophrenia with brain anatomy, brain activity, and behavioral screens on a large set of zebrafish mutants.

Edmonton-based Delta Genomics Centre becomes Neogen's fifth animal genomics laboratory, joining ones in Australia, Brazil, Scotland, and the US.

While canine genetic testing providers bemoan a lack of quality standards, they disagree on what specific rules labs should follow.
