    Abstract
    As key regulators, long non-coding RNAs play a crucial role in the ruminant mammary gland. However, the function of lncRNAs in milk fat synthesis from dairy cows is largely unknown. In this study, we used the weighted gene co-expression network analysis to comprehensive analyze the expression profile data of lncRNAs from the group's previous Illumina PE150 sequencing results based on bovine mammary epithelial cells from high- and low-milk-fat-percentage cows, and identify core lncRNAs significantly associated with MFP by module membership and gene significance. Functional...
