Genome-wide association studies have become possible in the chicken because of the recent availability of the complete genome sequence, a polymorphism map and high-density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping platforms. We used these tools to study the genetic basis of a very high level of heterosis that was previously observed for fatness in two F(2) populations established by crossing one outbred broiler (meat-type) sire with dams from two unrelated, highly inbred, light-bodied… CONTINUE READING
