|Summary of thesis||
We are investigating three 3 breeds of cows, the Lakenvelder, Swiss brown and the the Galloway. In these cows, interestingly, the whole body is uniformly colored except for the abdominal region, where there is a clear lack of pigmentation, which appears as a white belt. We are trying to understand the molecular and genetic mechanisms behind this phenotype.
