Lu D, et al.
The authors used llumina's BovineSNP50 BeadChip to survey genomic regions that potentially harbor genes or underlying variation in carcass quality of beef cattle. This study used 747 genotyped animals, mainly crossbred, with phenotypes on twelve carcass quality traits. Eight SNPs were found significantly associated with hot carcass weight. Seven of these SNP were located on Bos taurus autosome 6.
