Genetic diversity and selection signatures of the beef ‘Charolais de Cuba’ breed
(Scientific Reports, 2018-07-20) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
Characterization of bacterial microbiota compositions along the intestinal tract in pigs and their interactions and functions
(Scientific Reports, 2018-08-28) Genètica i Millora Animal
In addition to its value in meat production, the pig is an interesting animal model for human digestive tract studies due to its physiological similarities. The aim of this study was to describe the ...
Integration of GWAS, pathway and network analyses reveals novel mechanistic insights into the synthesis of milk proteins in dairy cows
(Scientific Reports, 2018-01-12) Genètica i Millora Animal
The quantities and proportions of protein fractions have notable effects on the nutritional and technological value of milk. Although much is known about the effects of genetic variants on milk proteins, ...
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) Genètica i Millora Animal; Nutrició Animal
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 ...
