Machine learning applied to transcriptomic data to identify genes associated with feed efficiency in pigs
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2019-03-13)
Background: To date, the molecular mechanisms that underlie residual feed intake (RFI) in pigs are unknown. Results from diferent genome‑wide association studies and gene expression analyses are not always consistent. The ...
In vivo safety evaluation of the Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 strain in broilers, piglets, and turkeys
(Toxicology Research and Application, 2019-02-11)
Clostridium butyricum MIYAIRI 588 (CBM 588) is a nonpathogenic, anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus characterized by the production of short-chain fatty acids, including butyrate. The safety and tolerance of CBM 588 was ...
Computed tomography evaluation of gilt growth performance and carcass quality under feeding restrictions and compensatory growth effects on the sensory quality of pork
(Livestock Science, 2020-04-15)
Restricted feed can affect the body composition of pigs. Body composition can be studied non-destructively in live pigs using computed tomography (CT). The objective was to investigate the effect of different feeding ...
