After quality control, a total of 30,847 SNPs that could be mapped to the 18 porcine autosomes (SSC) following the pig genome assembly 10.2, were used in the analyses.

Two association mapping approaches were used: linear mixed model (LMM) based on single locus regression analysis and a Bayesian variable selection approach (BVS). A total of 79 significant (p < 0.0001) SNP associations on six chromosomes were identified by LMM analyses. Out of these, ten SNPs crossed the genome-wide significance threshold. These ten SNPs were all located on the chromosomes 4 and 14. In the BVS analysis, a total of 44 SNPs located on 12 chromosomes had posterior probability more than or equal to 0.05, i.e. Bayes factor ≥ 10. Thirteen SNPs were identified both by LMM and BVS. These 13 SNPs were located on four chromosomes 4, 7, 8 and 14. Hypoxia inducible factor 1, alpha subunit inhibitor (HIF1AN) and Ladybird homeobox 1 (LBX1) are two possible candidate genes affecting FCR on chromosomes 4 and 14, respectively.
