Simplify Your GWAS & Genomic Prediction with SVS

Genome-Wide Association Studies

SVS is a project-oriented program that manages and analyzes genomic datasets. This webcast statistically and visually explores the relationships among genetic variants within a cattle dataset. Even further, this webcast evaluates genotypes with corresponding phenotypes to assess how well a model can predict a phenotype of interest. Starting with genotypic data from the microarray and the recorded phenotypic data for… Read more »

Guest Post: Population Structure & Genetic Improvement in Livestock by Dr. Heather Huson

Genetic improvement in livestock, particularly dairy cattle, has been a priority for both industry and researchers for nearly a century.  While the animal itself is the foundation for improvement, our research and the implementation of improvement has progressed with developing technologies and priorities.  In terms of genetics, we have evolved from basic measures of heritability to identifying specific mutations and… Read more »
