A 700,000 year old horse gets its genome sequenced

Scientists at the Centre for GeoGenetics at the Natural History Museum of Denmark (University of Copenhagen) have sequenced the so far oldest genome from a prehistoric creature. They have done so by sequencing and analyzing short pieces of DNA molecules preserved in bone-remnants from a horse that had been kept frozen for the last 700,000 years in the permafrost of Yukon, Canada.

Inheritance of Curly Hair in Horses

This is a theoretic genetic formula for how the dominant curly gene, the straight haired gene, and the recessive curly gene appear to interact. At the moment this is the best explanation we have that fits all the information we have. We do not yet have a DNA test for any “curly gene.”
