From: Novel insight into the genomic architecture of feed and nitrogen efficiency measured by residual energy intake and nitrogen excretion in growing pigs

Figure 7

QTL profile of performance traits throughout genome. The genomic architecture of feed and nitrogen efficiency in association with growth, feed intake and nitrogen excretion traits are presented using QTL information for residual energy intake (REI), feed conversion ratio (FCR), nitrogen excretion per weight gain (NEWG), total nitrogen excretion (TNE), average daily nitrogen excretion (ADNE), average daily feed intake (ADFI), average daily energy intake (ADEI), average daily gain (ADG), average daily protein deposition (APD) and average daily lipid deposition (ALD). The a, b, c and d represent 60 to 90 kg, 90 to 120 kg, 120 to 140 kg growth stages and the entire analysed growth period (60 to 140 kg), respectively.
