  1. Line effect indicates significant (+/−) or non significant (=) differences between the Epi+ and Epi− lines (p < 0.05, see Additional file 2: Table S1). Phenotypes were measured at slaughter (27 weeks of age) except for body weight at 3 weeks and behavioral traits (see “Methods”). Methylation levels were measured by LUMA on blood sampled at 23 weeks of age
  2. * p-values from the linear mixed model analysis were adjusted with the Benjamini–Hochberg correction
  3. aThese traits were measured in females only (since in the original HSR line and in the Epi− and Epi+ lines, abdominal fat is nearly absent in males)
