Genetic analysis of an F2 intercross between two chicken lines divergently selected for body-weight
Background We have performed Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) analysis of an F2 intercross between two chicken lines divergently selected for juvenile body-weight. In a previous study 13 identified loci with effects on ...
Proviral integrations and expression of endogenous Avian leukosis virus during long term selection for high and low body weight in two chicken lines
Background Long-term selection (> 45 generations) for low or high juvenile body weight from a common founder population of White Plymouth Rock chickens has generated two extremely divergent lines, the LWS and HWS lines. ...
