NextGen is a collaborative international research project investigating the biodiversity of key livestock species. This first release of their genomic data marks the culmination of four years work by the NextGen project, from collecting samples and sequencing samples, through to calling genotypes and annotating variants.
The project participants used whole genome sequencing and genotyping microarrays to catalogue and study variation within populations of cattle, sheep and goat from Iran, Morocco and Uganda, so generating unique data sets of variation in traditional breeds and wild
