• Genome‐wide association study of resistance/susceptibility to infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis in Brazilian Hereford cattle

    12 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    Genome-wide association studies were conducted to identify the more informative genomic regions and SNPs, as well as to identify candidate genes associated with infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis resistance/susceptibility in Hereford cattle. A Bayes B statistical approach was initially applied in genome-wide association studies by using deregressed estimated breeding values for IBK resistance/susceptibility. To estimate the combined effect of a genomic region that is potentially associated with QTL, 2504 non-overlapping 1-Mb windows that varied in SNP number were defined, with...
