Short summary
The main contribution of our paper is the identification of several SNPs of the SIRT1 gene in beef cattle and their relationships to carcass traits such as weight and meat percentage. We believe that this contribution is theoretically and practically relevant because beef cattle are bred to maximize carcass quality, but traits that lead to carcass quality are difficult to assess in vivo. We provide a method to select individuals for breeding based on genetic propensity for meat production.
