Short summary
Using RNA sequencing technology, we identified SNPs in the NAT9 and MAP3K3 genes that are associated with litter size in Berkshire pigs. Our results suggest that selecting Berkshire pigs with the GG genotype of NAT9 and the CT genotype of MAP3K3 can produce more piglets. We suggest that these genetic markers would improve litter size in breeding programs.
