Iberian pig genome remains unchanged after five centuries

17 septiembre 2014

A team of Spanish researchers have obtained the first partial genome sequence of an ancient pig. Extracted from a sixteenth century pig found at the site of the Montsoriu Castle in Girona, the data obtained indicates that this ancient pig is closely related to today’s Iberian pig. Researchers also discard the hypothesis that Asian pigs were crossed with modern Iberian pigs.
