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 ...
Use of group records of feed intake to select for feed efficiency in rabbit
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2019-04-24)
Models for genetic evaluation of feed efficiency (FE) for animals housed in groups when they are either fed ad libitum (F) or on restricted (R) feeding were implemented. Definitions of FE on F included group records of ...
Bayesian hierarchical model for comparison of different nonlinear function and genetic parameter estimates of meat quails
(Poultry Science, 2018-12-07)
This study aimed to compare different nonlinear functions to describe the growth curve of European quails and to estimate growth curve parameters, (co)variance components, and genetic and systematic effects that affected ...
