|Title:||Strategies, limitations and opportunities for marker-assisted selection in livestock||Contributor(s):||Dekkers, Jack C M (author); Van Der Werf, Julius Herman (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2642||Abstract:||This chapter reviews the principles, opportunities and limitations for detection of quantitative trait loci (QTL) in livestock and for their use in genetic improvement programmes. Alternate strategies for QTL detection are discussed, as are methods for inclusion of marker and QTL information in genetic evaluation. Practical issues regarding implementation of marker-assisted selection (MAS) for selection in reed crosses and for selection within breeds are described, along with likely routes towards achieving that goal. Opportunities and challenges are also discussed for the use of molecular information for genetic improvement of livestock in developing countries.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Marker-Assisted Selection, p. 167-184||Publisher:||Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations||Place of Publication:||Rome, Italy||ISBN:||9789251057179||Field of Research (FOR):||060412 Quantitative Genetics (incl Disease and Trait Mapping Genetics)||Other Links:||http://www.fao.org/docrep/010/a1120e/a1120e00.htm
