Quotes

"No previous study on animal domestication has involved such a careful examination of genetic variation in the wild ancestral species. This allowed us to pinpoint the genetic changes that have occurred during rabbit domestication" Leif Andersson of Uppsala University in Sweden said in a  statement , according to a release issued by the university
...rules that guided the sheep dogs behaviour --- (1) collect the sheep when they are dispersed and (2) drive them forward when they are aggregated. "At every time step in the model, the dog decides if the herd is cohesive enough or not. If not cohesive, it will make it cohesive, but if it’s already cohesive the dog will push the herd towards the target,” said Strömbom in the I&T magazine. When the simple algorithm for herding sheep was discovered by scientists and mathemeticians at the University of Swansea through observation, the results will be for programming robots to possibly be used for situations like herding sheep, moving livestock, clean up environmental accidents, like oil spills, or even crowd control."
...system among the genes particularly targeted during domestication, alluding to the drastic changes in behaviour between wild and domestic rabbits. "The results we have are very clear, the difference between a wild and a tame rabbit is not which genes they carry, but how the expression of their genes is regulated" said Leif Andersson, co-author and Head of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology at Uppsala University
"This allowed us to pinpoint the genetic changes that have occurred during rabbit domestication" said Leif Andersson from Uppsala University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Texas A&M University
