• Comparison of genomic prediction methods for residual feed intake in broilers

    2 monthes ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    Residual feed intake is a measure of the feed efficiency of animals. Previous studies have identified SNPs associated with RFI. The objective of this study was to compare the GBLUP model with the GA-BLUP model including previously identified associated SNPs. The nine associated SNPs were obtained from the genome-wide association study on a discovery population as preselection information. These models were analysed using ASREML software using a 5-fold cross-validation method on a validation population. With the genetic architecture matrix used, which was conducted with the nine...
