|Title:||Tips for making better use of PIGBLUP||Contributor(s):||Hermesch, Susanne (author) ; Crump, Ronald E (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10542||Abstract:||Breeders may not always make best use of the various features of PIGBLUP since they are unaware of specific settings available in the system. This is especially the case for newly developed features but may also apply to system settings that have been part of PIGBLUP since its early development. For example, fitting genetic groups for introduced animals may have only become important as their data set has grown and the use of AI boars from other herds has increased. It is the aim of this document to provide tips for making better use of PIGBLUP. A number of PIGBLUP features are outlined including the use of spline functions in the $Index, fitting genetic groups for introduced animals, obtaining across-breed EBVs and making better use of PBSAMA.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Pig Genetics Workshop, Armidale, Australia, 25th - 26th October, 2006||Conference Details:||Pig Genetics Workshop, Armidale, Australia, 25th - 26th October, 2006||Source of Publication:||Pig Genetics Workshop Notes: October 25-26, 2006, p. 8-15||Publisher:||Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://agbu.une.edu.au/pig_genetics/pdf/2006/Paper%203_SH_PIGBLUP_tips.pdf
