    Abstract: Genotype by sequencing (GBS) is a next generation sequencing based method that takes advantage of reduced representation to enable genotyping of large numbers of individuals at a large number of SNP markers. It is relatively straightforward, robust, and cost-effective method to reduce problems in crop caused by a large genome size, reduced represen... Show More

    Abstract: Pertussis, known as whooping cough, is a severe respiratory disease most commonly caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis. It is transmitted from person to person by aerosols and infects the ciliated epithelium of the airways. Pertussis was responsible for high mortality rates before the introduction of effective vaccines in the second half of... Show More
