Selection of breeding stock in pigs favours 6PGD heterozygotes


Associations between genetic variation at four enzyme polymorphisms and growth rate, feed conversion and economic index were studied in commercial lines of pigs. These lines were also tested for the fit of observed genotypic frequencies to expected genotypic frequencies at the four polymorphic loci. Genotypic distributions fit Hardy-Weinberg expectations in… (More)
