Submission + - Cow genome sequenced

Smivs writes: "The BBC are reporting that the genome of a female Hereford cow has been sequenced, which could be a starting point for major improvements in the agricultural industry. The information is likely to have a major impact on livestock breeding. The study, published in the journal Science, was a six-year effort by more than 300 scientists in 25 countries. Cattle now join an elite group of animals to have had their genome sequenced — a group that includes humans, other primates and rodents."
