• Detecting selection signatures between Duroc and Duroc synthetic pig populations using high-density SNP chip

    6 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    The development of high throughput genotyping techniques has facilitated the identification of selection signatures of pigs. The detection of genomic selection signals in a population subjected to differential selection pressures may provide insights into the genes associated with economically and biologically important traits. To identify genomic regions under selection, we genotyped 488 Duroc pigs and 155 D × Korean native pigs using the Porcine SNP70K BeadChip. By applying the F ST and extended haplotype homozygosity methods, we detected genes under directional selection...
