Our understanding of the molecular genetic basis of several key performance traits in pigs has been significantly advanced through the quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping approach. However, in contrast to growth and fatness traits, the genetic basis of feed intake traits has rarely been investigated through QTL mapping. Since feed intake is an important component of efficient pig production, the identification of QTL affecting feed intake may lead to the identification of genetic markers that… CONTINUE READING
