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. ...
Rabbit Microbiota Changes Throughout the Intestinal Tract
(Frontiers in Microbiology, 2018-09-13)
To gain insight into the importance of carefully selecting the sampling area for intestinal microbiota studies, cecal and fecal microbial communities of Caldes meat rabbit were characterized. The animals involved in the ...
Genetic diversity and selection signatures of the beef ‘Charolais de Cuba’ breed
(Scientific Reports, 2018-07-20)
In this study, we used BovineSNP50 Genotyping BeadChip data to estimate the structure, putative ancestral origin as well as to identify regions with selective sweeps that may have had an important role in the adaptation ...
Effects of breed‐production system on collagen, textural, and sensory traits of 10 European beef cattle breeds
(Journal of Texture Studies, 2018-06-23)
In the current study the collagen, texture, and sensory characteristics of meat from 712 yearling males of 10 local Spanish and French beef breeds raised in their typical production systems were described. The breed‐production ...
