Genes differentially expressed between Fat and Lean chickens. Results were expressed as the Fat to Lean ratio of the gene expression. The p value of each gene was adjusted according to the Benjamini-Hochberg method controlling the False Discovery Rate [40]. Difference in gene expression was considered significant if its adjusted p value was p < 0.05.

Genes differentially expressed between the G+ and G- chickens generated from the F2FL population. Results were expressed as G+ to G- ratio of the gene expression. The p value of each gene was corrected according to the Benjamini-Hochberg method controlling the False Discovery Rate [40]. Difference in gene expression was considered significant if its adjusted p value was p < 0.05.
