Quantitative trait loci and genomewide association mapping in western Canadian spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)Download
Early maturity, grain yield and grain protein content are some of the important traits in western Canadian wheat breeding programs. A series of experiments were conducted to explore the genetic basis of days to heading, and maturity, plant height, grain protein, grain yield and related traits. In...
The Effect of Mutations in Stearoyl CoA Desaturase Gene and Fatty Acid Synthase on Milk Composition and Fatty Acid Profile in Milk Fat of Dairy CowsDownload
The effects of diet on milk fatty acid profile, including conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) have been well documented, however, there is limited information on the interaction of diet with genetics. The objective of this research was to determine the effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)...
Oligosaccharides production and purification from barley bran using sequential supercritical CO2 extraction, subcritical water hydrolysis and membrane filtrationDownload
Barley bran is a by-product of the food industry, and a good source of lipid, protein and fiber. In this thesis research, fractionation of barley bran was carried out to remove lipid, starch and protein to obtain a sample enriched in fiber, specially arabinoxylan. Fiber concentrate was used for...
A reproductive phenotype that has high variability, repeatability, heritability, and association with fertility could become an excellent candidate for genetic selection to augment fertility in dairy cows. Therefore, the general objective of this research was to evaluate the aforementioned...
Egg yolk contains approximately 10% (w/w) phospholipids (PL), of which about 70% is phosphatidylcholine (PC). Conventional methods of PL extraction from egg yolk involve using hazardous organic solvents. Supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2), as a "green" solvent, had been applied for the...
Assessment of overall diet quality (DQ), rather than single nutrient intake analysis, provides a broader view of an individual’s nutrition status. Overall DQ is assessed using DQ tools that evaluate overall nutritional quality including Adequacy, Moderation and Variety. The association between...
