Genotypic collection of minks

TRAPEZOV@BIONET.NSC.RU

Description

The basic postulates for the development of animal-breeding were being carried out at the end of 20s - the beginning of the 30s last century.

Academician D.K. Belyaev, who was the first sciences at the onset of working out the basics of fur animal genetics and breeding, wrote: " It is already during the first years of man-controlled breeding minks that the differentiation of this wild species into a number of types being the prototype of future breeds distinct from each other not only in fur color but a number of important characters of reproduction and viability, occurred".

The American mink became not only a fur queen with animal breeders, but like Drosophila melanogaster - a classical object of genetic studies and has a huge number of mutations modifying fur color - dominant and semi-dominant, lethal, sublethal and recessive.

At present, the world and homeland genotypic collection of the American mink which completely meets the requirements of fur marketing is presented at the Institute of Cytology and Genetics, SB RAS. New color mutations combined with the already existing developed at the ICG have become the focus of fur clothing producers. They were highly estimated at the international and homeland fur exhibitions.

Technical-Economic Advantages

At present, the Institute of Cytology and Genetics is the only point in Russia where one can find the whole set of mutations of mink fur color currently existing. Moreover, new fur colors that are only in the Institute's collection were produced here.

Fields of Application

Fur animal-breeding.

Level and Location of Practical Realisation

The collection of mink fur color samples is being maintained at the Experimental Animal Husbandry of the Institute of Cytology and Genetics, SB RAS. The Karel'skaya spotted mink was purchased by the Kuitezhsky Animal Husbandry and the white mink - by the Priazhensky Animal Husbandry.
