Abstract

The search for candidate genes underlying the expression of principal components (PCs) for different traits is a useful tool that allows exploring biological mechanisms associated with the traits of interest. The aim of this study was to identify genomic regions associated with PCs for growth,...

Abstract

The objective of this literature review was to compile information and gather results of estimates of genetic parameters for growth traits of Tabapuã cattle. The traits were: birth weight (PN), weaning weight (PD), yearling weight (PA) post-yearling weight (PS). Growth traits are of great...

Abstract

The Body structure (BS) is a trait to be considered in the genetic evaluation of beef cattle because it is associated with economically important traits, maintenance requirement, and physiological maturity. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the effect of genotype-environment...

AbstractFull Text

This paper aims to estimate the (co) variances components on the genetic parameters for growth traits in Nelore Mocho cattle, raised in Cerrado biome, using Bayesian statistics. The data has been obtained from 48,063 cattle, provenient of Nelore Mocho herd, born from 1987 to 2009, participant of...

AbstractFull Text

Were used records of 5834 animals with body weights at 120, 240, 365 and 450 days of age to compare the function of Brody on the context in the fixed and mixed non-linear models. The models were used for the description of the growth curve in Nellore cattle breed from herds raised in the...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to apply data transformation via isotonic regression in growth curves studies of Guzerá cattle whose data presented disturbances characterized by decreased body weight in certain age groups. Weight-age data were collected on newly weaned Guzerá males according to the ...
