This study assessed the influence of background genome on expression of genes linked to DNA fingerprint (DFP) bands in chickens. Two experimental lines of White Plymouth Rocks previously selected for high or low 8-wk body weight were crossed to produce two F1 males that served as heads of two sire families. Each of these sires was mated to three hens from… CONTINUE READING
