  1. Oczkowicz M, Szmatoła T, Świątkiewicz M, Pawlina Tyszko K, Gurgul A, Zabek T. Corn dried distillers grains with solubles (cDDGS) in the diet of pigs change the expression of adipose genes that are potential therapeutic targets in metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. BMC Genomics. 2018;19:864 pubmed publisher
    ..g., FASN, AACS, ALAS1, HMGCS1, and VSIG4). Thus, our results support the idea of including cDDGS into the diets of companion animals and humans and encourage research into the bioactive ingredients of cDDGS. ..
  2. Oczkowicz M, Mucha A, Tyra M, Ropka Molik K, Piórkowska K. Lack of the associations of the polymorphisms in IGF2, MC4R and GNAS genes with reproduction traits in pigs and imprinting analysis of IGF2 gene in ovary and cornus uteri. Reprod Domest Anim. 2013;48:562-8 pubmed publisher
    ..We also investigated expression of IGF2 gene and showed that this gene is monoallelically expressed in reproductive organs (ovary and cornus uteri). ..
  3. Oczkowicz M, Szmatoła T, Piórkowska K, Ropka Molik K. Variant calling from RNA-seq data of the brain transcriptome of pigs and its application for allele-specific expression and imprinting analysis. Gene. 2018;641:367-375 pubmed publisher
    ..We have also confirmed maternal expression of the MEG3 gene in pigs. Our results present how RNA-seq data may be used for imprinting studies without sequencing of parental genomes...
