|Title:||The effect of linkage and flock size on the accuracy of estimated genetic group effects||Contributor(s):||Khusro, Mohammad (author); Brown, Daniel (author); Graser, Hans Ulrich (author); Tier, Bruce (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4156||Abstract:||Simulation was used to examine the effect of linkage and flock size on the accuracy of estimation of genetic group effects and their associated variance in a single-trait across-flock evaluation. The accurate partitioning of genetic and environmental effects and the accuracy of estimation of genetic group variance is dependent on the level of linkage (at least 20%) among flocks, inclusion of genetic group effects in the evaluation model, size of genetic groups and the heritability of the trait.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||Genetic Improvement - Making it Happen, University of New England, Armidale, NSW, Australia, September 23 - September 26 2007||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Seventeenth Conference for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 545-548||Publisher:||AAABG: Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics||Place of Publication:||Armidale, NSW, Australia||ISSN:||1328-3227||Field of Research (FoR) 2008:||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2008:||830311 Sheep - Wool||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/35062558?selectedversion=NBD42373479
