Additional file 8: of Transcriptome adaptation of the bovine mammary gland to diets rich in unsaturated fatty acids shows greater impact of linseed oil over safflower oil on gene expression and metabolic pathways

Principal component analysis of the gene expression of samples from cows whose diets were supplemented with 5 % linseed oil or 5 % safflower oil (on dry matter bases). Neither component 1 and 2 (A), or 2 and 3 (B) could separate the samples according to treatments. Samples were widely dispersed while those from the same animal tended to group together, hinting at wide inter-animal variations. (PDF 178 kb)
