Abstract

Background: The detection of quantitative trait loci has accelerated with recent developments in genomics. The introduction of genomic selection in combination with sequencing efforts has made a large amount of genotypic data available. Functional traits such as fertility and calving traits have...

Abstract

Background: Multi-marker methods, which fit all markers simultaneously, were originally tailored for genomic selection purposes, but have proven to be useful also in association analyses, especially the so-called BayesC Bayesian methods. In a recent study, BayesD extended BayesC towards accounting...

Abstract

Background: The availability of whole-genome sequence data from key ancestors in bovine populations provides an exhaustive catalogue of polymorphic sites that segregate within and across cattle breeds. Sequence variants identified from the sequenced genome of key ancestors can be imputed into...

Abstract

Background: Bovine progressive degenerative myeloencephalopathy (Weaver syndrome) is a neurodegenerative disorder in Brown Swiss cattle that is characterized by progressive hind leg weakness and ataxia, while sensorium and spinal reflexes remain unaffected. Although the causal mutation has not been ...
