Genetic variations for egg internal quality of ducks revealed by genome‐wide association study

One year ago   |   By Animal Genetics

Summary
Egg internal quality traits are important traits related to egg production in poultry industry. To better understand the genetic architecture of egg internal quality traits in ducks, we performed genetic parameters estimates and a genome-wide association study. The phenotypic values of egg weight, yolk color, albumin height , yolk weight, and Haugh unit were collected individually from 352 F 2 laying ducks produced by reciprocal crosses between mallards and Pekin ducks, and their genotypes were assayed by whole genome re-sequencing. The results showed that the AH and HU traits have...

Aramus the Limpkin

Aramus the Limpkin

As it walks in its marshy habitat, its ungainly stride makes it look as if the bird is limping, hence the common name of Limpkin. Aramus , the genus name, comes from the Greek... Read more ...
