Summary of nuclear markers significantly associated/linked1 to growth traits and their annotations.
Body weight was recorded on each animal at approximately 7 (Weight2), 9 (Weight3) and 12 (Weight4) months post-hatching. A family-based sample that included 40 full-sib families each with 17 progeny were genotyped with 30 SNPs. Summary statistics were obtained with program PLINK version 1.07 .2
SNPs minor allele frequency (MAF).3
SNPs showing deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Exact P-value estimated using 20,000 permutations.4
QTDT population stratification test.5
t-statistic for regression of phenotype on allele count P is the asymptotic P-value for t-statistic, was estimated using 20,000 permutations.6
Genome-wide association analysis with family data (GWAF) R package .7
Family-based Bayesian quantitative trait nucleotide (BQTN) analysis was performed with software SOLAR version 4.0 .9
SNP annotation; gene name and SNP location (ORF/5′UTR/3′UTR), SYN = Synonymous, NON-SYN = Non-synonymous.
NA indicates statistically insignificant estimate.
