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 ...
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 ...
Effect of increasing lignin in isoenergetic diets at two soluble fibre levels on digestion, performance and carcass quality of growing rabbits
(Animal Feed Science and Technology, 2020-01-27) Genètica i Millora Animal
To assess the effect of increasing dietary lignin in isoenergetic diets at two soluble fibre (SF) levels on digestion, performance and carcass quality of growing rabbits, four diets were formulated ...
Genetic analysis of functional longevity in a complete diallel crossing experiment involving four maternal rabbit lines
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2020-10-26) Genètica i Millora Animal
In a diallel cross between four maternal lines of rabbits, the four maternal lines and the corresponding crossbred females (does) were evaluated concerning functional longevity, estimating their ...
Computed tomography evaluation of gilt growth performance and carcass quality under feeding restrictions and compensatory growth effects on the sensory quality of pork
(Livestock Science, 2020-04-15) Genètica i Millora Animal; Nutrició Animal; Qualitat i Tecnologia Alimentària
Restricted feed can affect the body composition of pigs. Body composition can be studied non-destructively in live pigs using computed tomography (CT). The objective was to investigate the effect of ...
