The rapid drop in cost and increase in throughput of nucleic acid sequencing has provided many opportunities for aquaculture genetics and breeding. Genome-wide genetic marker data can now be readily generated in a cost-effective manner, even for species without extensive prior genomic tools. The...

The prediction of complex or quantitative traits from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes has transformed livestock and plant breeding, and is also playing an increasingly important role in prediction of human disease. Genomic predictions are made using a prediction equation derived from ...

Improvement of litter size in pigs through selection was considered a difficult task in the past. Low heritability, negative correlation between direct additive genetic and maternal effect, limited size of the nucleus population, expression only in females, and relatively late age of measurements,...
