Data from: Analysis of genome-wide structure, diversity and fine mapping of Mendelian traits in traditional and village chickens

David Wragg, Joram M. Mwacharo, Paul M. Hocking, Olivier Hanotte & Jose A. Alcalde
Extensive phenotypic variation is a common feature among village chickens found throughout much of the developing world, and in traditional chicken breeds that have been artificially selected for traits such as plumage variety. We present here an assessment of traditional and village chicken populations, for fine mapping of Mendelian traits using genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping while providing information on their genetic structure and diversity. Bayesian clustering analysis reveals two main genetic backgrounds in traditional...
