How bioinformatics enables livestock applied sciences in the genomic era
MetadataShow full item record
This review paper presents the three main approaches currently used in livestock genomic sciences where the bioinfomatics plays a critical role. They are named as Genomic Selection (GS), Genome Wide Association Study (GWAS) and Signatures of Selection (SS). The subsides for the construction of this article were generated in a current project (started in 2011), so called Zebu Genome Consortium (ZGC), which joins researchers from different institutions and countries, aiming to scientifically explore genomic information of Bos taurus indicus cattle breeds and deliver useful information to breeders and academic community, specially from the tropical regions of the world. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
