Analysing genetic variation in farm animals

Geoff Simm, Geoff Pollott, Raphael Mrode, Ross Houston, Karen Marshall

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, topics focused on how to quantify the extent to which genes affect measured traits and how to use this information in breeding programmes. Highlights include: estimating heritability; estimating non-additive parameters, correlations, and genotype by environment interactions, molecular genetics and trait variations; and calculating inbreeding using SNP markers.
