The importance of improving meat quality characterized by complex multivariate properties has been recognized worldwide for over two decades in pig production. However, there is still very limited knowledge of the mechanisms behind meat quality. In this thesis, meat quality is studied through association mapping, expression study and genetic variation analysis. Many state of the art technologies including high-density SNP chip genotyping, hig-throughput re-sequencing and strand-specific RNA-Seq were employed. Numerous quantitative trait loci, candidate genes and a segmental duplication associated with meat quality have been indentified.
