  1. Introduction

    Comparison of analyses of the QTLMAS XII common dataset. I: Genomic selection

    A dataset was simulated and distributed to participants of the QTLMAS XII workshop who were invited to develop genomic selection models. Each contributing group was asked to describe the model development and ...

    A strategy for QTL fine-mapping using a dense SNP map

    Dense marker maps require efficient statistical methods for QTL fine mapping that work fast and efficiently with a large number of markers. In this study, the simulated dataset for the XIIth QTLMAS workshop wa...

    Haplotyping via minimum recombinant paradigm

    Haplotypes can increase the power of gene detection over genotypes and are essential to estimate linkage disequilibrium.

    Bayesian genomic selection: the effect of haplotype length and priors

    Breeding values for animals with marker data are estimated using a genomic selection approach where data is analyzed using Bayesian multi-marker association models. Fourteen model scenarios with varying haplot...

    Pre-selection of most significant SNPS for the estimation of genomic breeding values

    The availability of a large amount of SNP markers throughout the genome of different livestock species offers the opportunity to estimate genomic breeding values (GEBVs). However, the estimation of many effect...
