Identification of loci and genes for growth related traits from a genome-wide association study in a slow- × fast-growing broiler chicken cross

Abstract

Identification of functional genes for multifactorial traits is an ongoing priority. A genome-wide association study and gene expression study for weight and carcass composition traits is presented here using a F2 resource population derived from a cross between slow- and fast-growing chicken breeds. For weight traits, eight SNPs on GGA4 plus one SNP on… (More)
