New data on the evolutionary and history of donkey coloration

Researchers from the UAB and from the CRAG recently participated in the most complete donkey genome study ever conducted, in which researchers verified that the domestication process occurred in northeastern Africa some 6000 years ago and that the human preference for intense coat colours favoured the selection of a gene regulating pigmentation in both donkeys and horses.
