Simple Summary Analysis of the genomic regions under consideration can provide important insights into the genetic basis of complex traits. In this study, we utilized a high-density SNP (Single nucleotide polymorphism) array for analysis of genome selection signatures in Chinese Wagyu cattle. In total, 239 selected regions responding to 162 candidate genes were identified, which related to economic traits, including fatty acid, meat quality, growth and developmental traits. Moreover, we found… Expand
