Formatted Abstract/Summary

Number of teats is extremely valuable for the pig industry. On this work, we aim to exploit the results of a Bayesian GWAS for number of teats in commercial pigs to construct an associated candidate genes network. Significant SNPs were identified and the related genes obtained, which enabled explaining the genetic mechanism behind them. Thus, the predicted gene interactions were consistent with the known mammals breast biology traits (e.g., cell proliferation and embryonic development), providing new candidate genes for number of teats in pigs.
