- Genome-wide linkage analysis of inguinal hernia in pigs using affected sib pairsEli Grindflek
The Norwegian Pig Breeders Association NORSVIN, Hamar, Norway
BMC Genet 7:25. 2006..The genome scan utilised affected sib pairs (ASP), and the data was analysed using both an ASP test based on Non-parametric Linkage (NPL) analysis, and a Transmission Disequilibrium Test (TDT)...

Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics, University of Gottingen, Gottingen, Germany
J Anim Breed Genet 124:117-23. 2007..99 (RT-ranking) and 0.96 (ART-ranking), while the phenotypic correlation was lower, 0.60 (RT-ranking) and 0.62 (ART-ranking). The genetic trend for the traits as well as the phenotypic change of the average RT was positive...
- Breeding for low body weight in Goettingen minipigsF Kohn
Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Georg August University, Gottingen, Germany
J Anim Breed Genet 125:20-8. 2008..On the basis of these results, a new breeding scheme with a focus on weight reduction can be implemented, which also has to account for correlated undesirable effects, like decline of fertility and increased rate of inbreeding...
- Embryonic expression and characterization of a Ptx1 homolog in DrosophilaG Vorbrüggen
Max Planck Institut fur biophysikalische Chemie, Abt Molekulare Entwicklungsbiologie, Am Fassberg, Gottingen, Germany
Mech Dev 68:139-47. 1997..We conclude that D-Ptx1 is more likely to control physiological cell functions than pattern formation during Drosophila embryogenesis...
