A whole genome scan was conducted to identify and fine map QTL regions for ultrasound and carcass merit traits in beef cattle. A total of 465 steers and bulls, genotyped for 4592 SNPs, were analysed for 16 ultrasound and carcass merit traits using interval mapping, single marker regression and...
Background This study was conducted to: (1) identify new SNPs for residual feed intake (RFI) and performance traits within candidate genes identified in a genome wide association study (GWAS); (2) estimate the proportion of variation in RFI explained by the detected SNPs; (3) estimate the...
