Table 1 Five Oar5 SNPs on the Illumina ovine 50K SNP array showing significant association with litter size, together with GDF9 c.1111G>A

From: A missense mutation in growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9) is strongly associated with litter size in sheep

  1. Using the Bonferroni correction for multiple testing (p<0.05), five Oar5 SNPs on the Illumina ovine 50K SNP array showed significant association to litter size in Norwegian White Sheep. Chromosomal positions together with the unadjusted p-values are shown. The corresponding information for GDF9 c.1111G>A is also shown.
