Identification of QTL with effects on intramuscular fat content and fatty acid composition in a Duroc × Large White cross
BackgroundImproving pork quality can be done by increasing intramuscular fat (IMF) content. This trait is influenced by quantitative trait loci (QTL) sought out in different pig populations.Expand

A genome-wide association study of production traits in a commercial population of Large White pigs: evidence of haplotypes affecting meat quality
BackgroundNumerous quantitative trait loci (QTL) have been detected in pigs over the past 20 years using microsatellite markers. However, due to the low density of these markers, the accuracy of QTLExpand

Meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies for cattle stature identifies common genes that regulate body size in mammals
Stature is affected by many polymorphisms of small effect in humans1. In contrast, variation in dogs, even within breeds, has been suggested to be largely due to variants in a small number ofExpand

Within-breed and multi-breed GWAS on imputed whole-genome sequence variants reveal candidate mutations affecting milk protein composition in dairy cattle
BackgroundGenome-wide association studies (GWAS) were performed at the sequence level to identify candidate mutations that affect the expression of six major milk proteins in Montbéliarde (MON),Expand

Physiological response and carcass and meat quality of suckling lambs in relation to transport time and stocking density during transport by road.
To evaluate the effect of stocking density and transport time on physiological responses and meat quality, 72 male suckling lambs were transported by road to the slaughterhouse at three differentExpand

Effects of quantitative trait loci on chromosomes 1, 2, 4, and 7 on growth, carcass, and meat quality traits in backcross Meishan x Large White pigs.
The aim of this work was to estimate whether genetic dissection of QTL on chromosomes 1, 2, 4, and 7, detected in an F2 Meishan x Large White population, can be achieved with a recombinant back-crossExpand

Selection for growth increases feed intake and affects feeding behavior of brown trout
Growth performance and feeding activities of brown trout selected for growth (S) and control lines (C) maintained without a selection pressure were compared. Groups of 500 fish of each line with theExpand

Selection for growth of brown trout (Salmo trutta) affects feed intake but not feed efficiency
Abstract Brown trout (Salmo trutta) were selected for growth for 4 generations. We tested the effects of selection on voluntary feed intake measured by self-feeders, feed efficiency and sizeExpand

Genetic parameters for cheese-making properties and milk composition predicted from mid-infrared spectra in a large data set of Montbéliarde cows.
Cheese-making properties of pressed cooked cheeses (PCC) and soft cheeses (SC) were predicted from mid-infrared (MIR) spectra. The traits that were best predicted by MIR spectra (as determined byExpand

Experience from large scale use of the EuroGenomics custom SNP chip in cattle
This article presents the strategy to evaluate candidate mutations underlying QTL or responsible for genetic defects, based upon the design and large-scale use of the Eurogenomics custom SNP chip setExpand
