OMIA:002075-9031 : Beak, crossed in Gallus gallus (chicken)
Categories: Craniofacial phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Cross-species summary: crossed bill
Inheritance: Joller et al. (2018): "The findings suggest a hereditary cause of crossed beaks in Appenzeller Barthuhn chickens. However, the observed variation in the phenotype, together with the inconclusive molecular genetic results indicates the need for additional research to unravel the genetic architecture of this beak deformity."
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
Appenzeller Barthuhn (Chicken) (VBO_0000443).
