Exploiting Genetic and Genomic Resources to Enhance Heat-Tolerance in Tomatoes
(Agronomy, 2019-01-08) Genòmica i Biotecnologia
High temperature is one of the most detrimental abiotic stresses in tomatoes. Many studies highlighted that even small increases in temperature can alter the plant reproductive system, causing ...
Identification of rumen microbial biomarkers linked to methane emission in Holstein dairy cows
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2019-08-16) Genètica i Millora Animal
Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions is relevant for reducing the environmental impact of ruminant production. In this study, the rumen microbiome from Holstein cows was characterized through a ...
Modulatory effect of protein and carotene dietary levels on pig gut microbiota
(Scientific Reports, 2019-10-10) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
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) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
Link-HD: a versatile framework to explore and integrate heterogeneous microbial communities
(Bioinformatics, 2019-11-18) Genètica i Millora Animal
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 ...
