Quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapped to large chromosomal regions have limited utility as DNA markers for marker-assisted selection (MAS) and are less informative as a reference for the identification of the underlying causative quantitative trait nucleotides (QTN). The objective of this study...
A whole genome scan was conducted to identify and fine map QTL regions for ultrasound and carcass merit traits in beef cattle. A total of 465 steers and bulls, genotyped for 4592 SNPs, were analysed for 16 ultrasound and carcass merit traits using interval mapping, single marker regression and...
