Analysis of adaptive traits of mammals in the Tibetan Plateau

Organisms Bos taurus

Description Yak is one of the native mammalian species at the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, and yet the genetic mechanism underlying its adaptation to high altitude environments remains elusive. We conducted cross-tissue, cross-altitude and cross-species analysis of transcriptomic landscape in domestic yaks. The generated multi-tissue transcriptomic data greatly improved the current yak annotation by identifying more than 210 thousand novel transcripts.
