Description: We describe the characterisation of the two main coat colour determining loci MC1R and KIT for pigs and demonstrate how this information can be utilized for breed identification. These approaches can be useful components of quality assurance and traceability schemes which are increasingly demanded by consumers.

These approaches can be useful components of quality assurance and traceability schemes which are increasingly demanded by consumers. RESUMEN Describimos la caracterización de dos loci determinantes del color de la capa en cerdos y demostramos cómo esta información puede ser utilizada para la identificación racial.
Estos avances pueden ser útiles en esquemas para asegurar la calidad y la trazabilidad cuya demanda se está incrementando en los consumidores. INTRODUCTION Pig breeds have been developed to satisfy particular market or production requirements.
For example, in the UK the Large White and particularly the Landrace breeds were developed for bacon whilst the Berkshire was known as a pork pig.
In Spain, the Iberian pig has been developed for outdoor rearing with acorns for the production of specialist ham.
Traditionally breeds were classified by their colour or type so that over time a Standard of Excellence (phenotypic conformity) was developed that defined phenotype and supplemented the pedigree.
One of the main distinguishing features for breed in pigs is coat colour an...
