Co-expression network analysis predicts a key role of microRNAs in the adaptation of the porcine skeletal muscle to nutrient supply
(Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology, 2020-01-17) Genètica i Millora Animal
Background The role of non-coding RNAs in the porcine muscle metabolism is poorly understood, with few studies investigating their expression patterns in response to nutrient supply. Therefore, we aimed ...
Genome‐wide detection of copy number variants in European autochthonous and commercial pig breeds by whole‐genome sequencing of DNA pools identified breed‐characterising copy number states
(Animal Genetics, 2020-06-08) Genètica i Millora Animal
In this study, we identified copy number variants (CNVs) in 19 European autochthonous pig breeds and in two commercial breeds (Italian Large White and Italian Duroc) that represent important genetic ...
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 ...
