  4. Content type: Proceedings

    The ultimate goal of QTL studies is to find causative mutations, which requires additional expression studies. Given the limited amount of time and funds, the smart option is to identify the most important QTL...

  5. Content type: Proceedings

    Genome-wide association studies have successfully identified several loci underlying complex diseases in humans. The development of high density SNP maps in domestic animal species should allow the detection o...

  6. Content type: Proceedings

    Genomic breeding values were estimated using a Gibbs sampler that avoided the use of the Metropolis-Hastings step as implemented in the BayesB model of Meuwissen et al., Genetics 2001, 157:1819–1829.

  8. Content type: Proceedings

    The study focuses on the impact of different sets of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) selected from the available data set on prediction of genomewide breeding values (GBVs) of animals. Correlations betw...

  9. Content type: Proceedings

    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...
