e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Exploring copy number variation in the rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) genome by array comparative genome hybridization


The European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is relevant in a large spectrum of fields: it is a livestock, a pet, a biomedical model and a biotechnology tool, a wild resource and a pest. The sequencing of the rabbit genome has opened new perspectives to study this lagomorph at the genome level. We herein investigated for the first time the O. cuniculus genome by array comparative genome hybridization (aCGH) and established a first copy number variation (CNV) genome map in this species comprising 155 copy number variation regions (CNVRs: 95 gains, 59 losses, 1 with both gain and loss) covering similar to 0.3% of the OryCun2.0 version. About 50% of the 155 CNVRs identified spanned 139 different protein coding genes, 110 genes of which were annotated or partially annotated (including Major Histocompatibility Complex genes) with 277 different gene ontology terms. Many rabbit CNVRs might have a functional relevance that should be further investigated. (C) 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
