The main hypothesis for the study presented was that current genotyping technologies could be us used to genotype DNA from various meat sources. The second hypothesis was that augmenting of 3 SNPs in the actin gene (McAnulty, 2002) with three non-sense SNP mutations in the calpastatin gene (Ciobanu et al, 2004) would improve the level of discrimination seen between pig breeds.
