Characterization of bacterial microbiota compositions along the intestinal tract in pigs and their interactions and functions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-08-28)
In addition to its value in meat production, the pig is an interesting animal model for human digestive tract studies due to its physiological similarities. The aim of this study was to describe the microbiome composition, ...
Integrative approach using liver and duodenum RNA-Seq data identifies candidate genes and pathways associated with feed efficiency in pigs
(Scientific Reports, 2018-01-11)
This study aims identifying candidate genes and pathways associated with feed efficiency (FE) in pigs. Liver and duodenum transcriptomes of 37 gilts showing high and low residual feed intake (RFI) were analysed by RNA-Seq. ...
Expression analysis of candidate genes for fatty acid composition in adipose tissue and identifcation of regulatory regions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-02-01)
The aim of this work was to study the genetic basis of the backfat expression of lipid-related genes associated with meat quality traits in pigs. We performed a genome-wide association study with the backfat gene expression ...
Association between the pig genome and its gut microbiota composition
(Scientific Reports, 2019-06-19)
The gut microbiota has been evolving with its host along the time creating a symbiotic relationship. In this study, we assess the role of the host genome in the modulation of the microbiota composition in pigs. Gut microbiota ...
Indel detection from Whole Genome Sequencing data and association with lipid metabolism in pigs
(PLoS ONE, 2019-06-27)
The selection in commercial swine breeds for meat-production efficiency has been increasing among the past decades, reducing the intramuscular fat content, which has changed the sensorial and technological properties of ...
