A genome-wide detection of selection signatures in conserved and commercial pig breeds maintained in Poland

Abstract Background Identification of selection signatures can provide a direct insight into the mechanism of artificial selection and allow further disclosure of the candidate genes related to the animals’ phenotypic variation. Domestication and subsequent long-time selection have resulted in exten...
