Table 1 Least-square means and standard errors for log-transformed fecal egg count, body weight, and packed cell volume for goats exposed to natural infection with H. contortus in China and Bangladesh

From: Single nucleotide polymorphisms in candidate genes are significantly associated with resistance to Haemonchus contortus infection in goats

  1. Goats from China and Bangladesh differed (P < 0.001) for LFEC and PCV but not body weight
  2. Fecal egg counts (FEC) were transformed as LFEC = log10 [(FEC + 25)]
  3. SE standard error, PCV packed cell volume, YCW Yichang White, NJY Nanjiang Yellow, ESB Enshi Black, BBG Black Bengal Goat
  4. Significance levels for each main effect and measured variable are shown on the line following the last main effect class. ***: P < 0.001; **: P < 0.01; ns: not significant
  5. a, b, cMeans within a country designation and main effect with different superscripts differ (P < 0.05)
