|Title:||Whole Genome Analysis of Heifer Puberty in Brahman Cattle||Contributor(s):||Zhang, Yuandan (author); Tier, Bruce (author); Hawken, R J (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7197||Abstract:||Whole genome association studies have been increasingly used for QTL discovery. Analyses can performed using single marker (for example, single-nucleotide polymorphism, SNP) regression, but have also evolved to multiple marker (SNPs) regression to facilitate genomic selection. A major area of importance to the Northern Australian beef industry is female reproductive rate; specifically the number of calves produced over the lifetime of breeding females. An important component of female reproductive rate is age at puberty of heifers. Reduction of age at puberty of heifers can increase calving rates (Taylor and Rudder 1986). This study compared the two types of methods for estimating SNP effects for age at puberty.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||9th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP), Leipzig, Germany, 1-6 August, 2010||Conference Details:||9th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP), Leipzig, Germany, 1-6 August, 2010||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 9th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production||Publisher:||German Society for Animal Science||Place of Publication:||Germany||Field of Research (FOR):||060408 Genomics||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830301 Beef Cattle||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.wcgalp2010.org/
