A QTL analysis of fat androstenone levels from a three-generation experimental cross between Large White and Meishan pig breeds was carried out. A total of 485 F2 males grouped in 24 full-sib families, their 29 parents and 12 grandparents were typed for 137 markers distributed over the entire porcine genome. The F2 male population was measured for fat androstenone levels at 100, 120, 140, and 160 d of age and at slaughter around 80 kg liveweight. Statistical analyses were performed using two… CONTINUE READING
