Figure 1

Manhattan plot of GWAS for bovine carcass weight. We genotyped 1156 Japanese Black steers with the Illumina Bovine SNP50 BeadChip. The association of SNP with carcass weight was analyzed by a variance component approach using EMMAX software [13] with adjustments for age, slaughterhouse, and year as covariates and fixed effects. Blue horizontal line, p = 1.28 × 10-6.
