Pig Genome Database
The completion of the pig draft genome sequence marks a milestone in 20 years of pig genome studies. The Pig Genome Database (PGD) is to serve the purpose not only to bring together pig gene expression, quantitative trait loci (QTL), candidate gene, and whole genome association study (WGAS) results, but also to facilitate information integration and mining within the pig and across species.

They also compared the pig genome with the human, cow, dog, horse and mouse genomes. The results show that the total size of the pig genome is 2.8 billion base pairs and contains 21,640 protein-coding genes. This is similar to other mammals, including humans.

Wiki Commons Sow with piglet. The genome of the pig (Sus scrofa) comprises 18 autosomes, with X and Y sex chromosomes.The genome size is similar to that of human at around 2.7Gb. The pig is a member of the artiodactyls, (cloven-hoofed mammal), which are an evolutionary clade distinct from the primates and rodents; there is extensive conserved homology between the pig genome and the human genome.

The pig genome map will be very useful in drug therapy to control or cure a disease. The pig provides the closely related model needed in human therapeutic medicine, notes Schook. Schook and Beever and other Illinois researchers are in the third year of a five-year study funded by USDA to create comprehensive genome maps of the pig and the cow.
