Abstract

The genetic response to selection is central to both evolutionary biology and animal and plant breeding. While Price's theorem (PT) is well-known in evolutionary biology, most breeders are unaware of it. Rather than using PT, breeders express response to selection as the product of the intensity of ...

Abstract

Genotype × environment interaction (G × E) is of increasing importance for dairy cattle breeders due to international multiple-environment selection of animals as well as the differentiation of production environments within countries. This theoretical simulation study tested the hypothesis that...

Abstract

Breeding programs for different species aim to improve performance by testing members of full-sib (FS) and half-sib (HS) families in different environments. When genotypes respond differently to changes in the environment, this is defined as genotype by environment (G × E) interaction. The presence ...

AbstractFull Text

The present study was aimed to assess the role of genotype× environment interaction (G×E) and generation interval on the genetic gain caused by importing the genetic materials of dairy cattle in a country without advanced breeding program. Changing allele substitution effects of quantitative trait...

Cover for Genetic components of behaviour.

The genetic component of behaviour makes it possible to select for behavioural traits, such as maternal ability in mice, and against others, like aggression in dogs. In order to carry out behavioural selection without unwanted side-effects, we need to know more about the links between various...

Abstract

Campero chicken INTA is a meat type of chicken raised in semi-intensive systems. In Argentina it is distributed by the Pro-Huerta Program for the self-production of food and the sale of surpluses by sectors of the population in a situation of food vulnerability. It also represents a potential...
