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 ...
About the existence of common determinants of gene expression in the porcine liver and skeletal muscle
(BMC Genomics, 2019-06-24)
Background: The comparison of expression QTL (eQTL) maps obtained in different tissues is an essential step to understand how gene expression is genetically regulated in a context-dependent manner. In the current work, ...
Modulatory effect of protein and carotene dietary levels on pig gut microbiota
(Scientific Reports, 2019-10-10)
In this study we investigated the impact of dietary protein and carotene levels on microbial functions and composition during the last month of purebred fattening Duroc pigs. Fecal microbiota was characterized using 16S ...
Link-HD: a versatile framework to explore and integrate heterogeneous microbial communities
Motivation We present Link-HD, an approach to integrate multiple datasets. Link-HD is a generalization of ‘Structuration des Tableaux A Trois Indices de la Statistique–Analyse Conjointe de Tableaux’, a family of methods ...
Sequence-based GWAS, network and pathway analyses reveal genes co-associated with milk cheese-making properties and milk composition in Montbéliarde cows
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2019-07-01)
Background Milk quality in dairy cattle is routinely assessed via analysis of mid-infrared (MIR) spectra; this approach can also be used to predict the milk’s cheese-making properties (CMP) and composition. When this ...
