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 ...
Genetic parameters and associated genomic regions for global immunocompetence and other health-related traits in pigs
(Scientific Reports, 2020-10-28) Genètica i Millora Animal; Sanitat Animal
The inclusion of health-related traits, or functionally associated genetic markers, in pig breeding programs could contribute to produce more robust and disease resistant animals. The aim of the present ...
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 ...
