Copy number vs. fertility in boars

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25888238

In this study we applied the extreme groups / selective genotyping approach for identifying copy number variations in high and low fertility breeding boars. The fertility indicator was the calculated Direct Boar Effect on litter size (DBE) that was obtained as a by-product of the national genetic evaluation for litter size (BLUP). The two groups of animals had DBE values at the upper (high fertility) and lower (low fertility) end of the distribution from a population of more than 38,000 boars.
