Species-specific description: Ren et al. (2021) "identified 26 genes (17 detected by both the FST and Hp approaches, five by either FST or Hp and four previously reported color-related genes) from ... genomic Pool-Seq data that might be responsible for the change in feather color that occurred during the domestication of geese (Anser cygnoides)."
