Potential benefit from using an identified major gene in BLUP evaluation with truncation and optimal selection
Genetics Selection Evolution
This study investigates the benefit of including information on an identified major gene in the estimation of breeding values in BLUP selection programmes. Selection for a quantitative trait is controlled by polygenes and a major locus with known effect. The benefit of using the gene information obtained in the short-term was maintained in the long-term by applying a selection tool which makes use of BLUP evaluation and optimisation of genetic contributions for maximising genetic gain whiledoi:10.1051/gse:19990202 fatcat:y6jtetugbjcntkwuh3npetmtxy
