Whole rumen metagenome sequencing allows classifying and predicting feed efficiency and intake levels in cattle
(Scientific Reports, 2019-01-09) Producció de Remugants
The current research was carried out to determine the associations between the rumen microbiota and traits related with feed efficiency in a Holstein cattle population (n = 30) using whole metagenome ...
Identification of eQTLs associated with lipid metabolism in Longissimus dorsi muscle of pigs with different genetic backgrounds
(Scientific Reports, 2020-06-17) Genètica i Millora Animal
Intramuscular fat content and its fatty acid composition affect porcine meat quality and its nutritional value. The present work aimed to identify genomic variants regulating the expression in the porcine ...
Networks of inbreeding coefficients in a selected population of rabbits
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2020-08-17) Genètica i Millora Animal
The correlation between pedigree and genomic‐based inbreeding coefficients is usually discussed in the literature. However, some of these correlations could be spurious. Using partial correlations and ...
Identification of strong candidate genes for backfat and intramuscular fatty acid composition in three crosses based on the Iberian pig
(Scientific Reports, 2020-08-18) Genètica i Millora Animal
Meat quality has an important genetic component and can be modified by the fatty acid (FA) composition and the amount of fat contained in adipose tissue and muscle. The present study aimed to find genomic ...
Gut eukaryotic communities in pigs: diversity, composition and host genetics contribution
(Animal Microbiome, 2020-05-07) Genètica i Millora Animal; Gestió Integral de Residus Orgànics
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 ...
Social network analysis of agonistic behaviour and its association with economically important traits in pigs
(Animals, 2020-11-16) Benestar Animal; Genètica i Millora Animal
Aggression behaviour has several negative consequences on the performance and welfare of pigs. Here, the Social Network Analysis (SNA) approach was employed to (1) identify individual traits that describe ...
