Analysis of porcine IGF2 gene expression in adipose tissue and its effect on fatty acid composition
(Plos One, 2019-08-08)
IGF2:g.3072G>A polymorphism has been described as the causal mutation of a maternally imprinted QTL for muscle growth and fat deposition in pigs. The objective of the current work was to study the ...
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 ...
