Dynamic Transcriptome Reveals the Mechanism of Liver Injury Caused by DHAV-3 Infection in Pekin Duck
Duck hepatitis A virus 3 (DHAV-3) is a wild endemic virus, which seriously endangers the duck industry in China. The present study aims to elucidate the mechanism of duck resistance to DHAV-3Expand
A SNP variant located in the cis-regulatory region of the ABCG2 gene is associated with mallard egg color.
Avian egg coloration is shaped by natural selection, but its genetic basis remains unclear. Here, we used genome-wide association (GWA) analysis and identity by descent (IBD) to finely map green eggExpand
Relationship between Residual Feed Intake and Production Traits in a Population of F2 Ducks
Improving feed efficiency is important for decreasing feed cost in poultry production, because feed account for approximately 70% of the total production costs. The selection of feed efficiency mayExpand
