ROLE OF MATERNAL AND CYTOPLASMIC EFFECTS IN EARLY CALF GROWTH IN A CLOSED BREEDING NUCLEUS ANGUS HERD
Maternal and cytoplasmic inheritance was investigated in a closed Angus herd. Observed traits were birth weight, weaning weight, adjusted body weight, average daily gain, hock length and scrotal circumference. Each animal ...
DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF CD4+ T CELL EPIGENETIC STATUS IN CHICKENS FOLLOWING MDV INFECTION AND DURING DIFFERENTIATION IN MICE
Epigenetic modifications constitute a complicated regulatory network controlling various biological processes from cell development to immune responses. The mechanisms through which CD4+ T cells react to environmental ...
Integrative genomic, epigenetic and metabolomic characterization of beef from grass-fed Angus steers
Beef constitutes a main component of the American diet and still represent the principal source of protein in many parts of the world. Currently, the meat market is experiencing an important transformation; consumers are ...
Genetic Architecture of Complex Traits and Accuracy of Genomic Selection in Dairy Cattle
Genomic selection has emerged as an effective approach in dairy cattle breeding, in which the key is prediction of genetic merit using dense SNP genotypes, i.e., genomic prediction. To improve the accuracy of genomic ...
The Genetic Architecture of Complex Traits and Diseases in Dairy Cattle
Genetic architecture refers to the number and locations of genes that affect a trait, as well as the magnitude and the relative contributions of their effects. A better understanding of the genetic architecture of complex ...
