Identifying suitable reference genes for gene expression analysis in developing skeletal muscle in pigs

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Cong-Jun Li –– The selection of suitable reference genes is crucial to accurately evaluate and normalize the relative expression level of target genes for gene function analysis. This manuscript provides some important information about the references genes for pigs, one is of important economic value.
