Expression QTL mapping of chicken femoral bone

ABSTRACT: Expression quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping of 127 adult femoral bone samples from a Red Junglefowl x White Leghorn advanced intercross line. Bone trait QTL have been mapped in the same cross, allowing a genetical genomics approach to quantitative trait gene identification

Life history traits such as fecundity are important to evolution because they make up components of lifetime fitness. Due to their polygenic architectures, such traits are difficult to investigate with genetic mapping. Therefore, little is known about their molecular basis. One possible way toward finding the underlying genes is to map intermediary molecular phenotypes, such as gene expression traits. We set out to map candidate quantitative trait genes for egg fecundity in the chicken by combin  ...[more]
