Sus scrofa, the domestic pig, is a member of the Artiodactyla (even-toed ungulates). First domesticated around 10,000 years ago, they are an important agricultural species worldwide. In addition, pigs are useful as a non-primate biomedical model organism, especially for the study of complex traits (e.g. obesity, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis) and for xenotransplantation experiments.

The first draft genome was released in 2012 by the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium, using sequence derived from a single Duroc sow (Duroc 2-14). Assembly 10.2 contains approximately 2.6 Gb of sequence and 21,000 protein-coding genes.
