    ..Expression of CCL16, CXCR1, CCR1 was increased in BRD positive animals compared to controls (P-corrected < 0.1). Cytokine expression data may help to provide insight into an animal's health. ..

    ..Meta-analyses of transcriptome data from groups of animals over multiple cohorts may be necessary to elucidate the genetics contributing these types of biological phenotypes. ..

    ..Additionally, the two markers significant for ADG in the validation population of animals may be more robust for the prediction of ADG and possibly the correlated trait ADFI, across multiple breeds and populations of cattle. ..

    ..These markers may be useful as prediction tools for animals that utilize feed more efficiently; however, validation with additional populations of cattle is required. ..

    ..Gain and intake are impacted by complex processes in the liver, which include cellular transport, metabolism regulation, and immune function. ..
