Dietary intake of bioactive ingredients impacts liver and adipose tissue transcriptomes in a porcine model of prepubertal early obesity
(Scientific Reports, 2020-03-25)
Global prevalence of obesity has increased to epidemic proportions over the past 40 years, with childhood obesity reaching alarming rates. In this study, we determined changes in liver and adipose tissue ...
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 ...
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 ...
Gut eukaryotic communities in pigs: diversity, composition and host genetics contribution
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-05-07)
Background The pig gut microbiome harbors thousands of species of archaea, bacteria, viruses and eukaryotes such as protists and fungi. However, since the majority of published studies have been focused ...
Genetic parameters and associated genomic regions for global immunocompetence and other health-related traits in pigs
(Scientific Reports, 2020-10-28)
The inclusion of health-related traits, or functionally associated genetic markers, in pig breeding programs could contribute to produce more robust and disease resistant animals. The aim of the present ...
