Short summary
The objective of the present study was to identify (for the first time) polymorphisms in calpain 1 gene and to perform an association analysis between these polymorphisms with related economic traits in goose raised in a dehesa ecosystem. The results suggest the possibility of using molecular markers in CAPN1 gene as a potential tool for improving carcass and meat quality traits in goose breeding programmes.
