Comparing the mRNA expression profile and the genetic determinism of intramuscular fat traits in the porcine gluteus medius and longissimus dorsi muscles
(BMC Genomics, 2019-03-04)
Background Intramuscular fat (IMF) content and composition have a strong impact on the nutritional and organoleptic properties of porcine meat. The goal of the current work was to compare the patterns of 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 ...
Integrating genome-wide co-association and gene expression to identify putative regulators and predictors of feed efficiency in pigs
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2019-09-02)
Background: Feed efciency (FE) has a major impact on the economic sustainability of pig production. We used a systems‑based approach that integrates single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) co‑association and gene‑expression data ...
