  1. aGenes that were differentially expressed between pigs from the low or high RFI lines in subcutaneous (SCAT) or perirenal (PRAT) adipose tissues only were clustered according to considered to gene ontology (GO) terms for biological processes and Genomes biological pathways (hsa). Significantly-enriched clusters (E ≥ 1) were listed with the enrichment (E) score, the number (Nb) of differentially expressed genes (DEG) in each cluster and P-value
