Fine-scale genetic structure analysis of Bos taurus and Bos indicus adaptability
MetadataShow full item record
Environmental impacts have varying effects on animal agriculture and genetic adaptability is necessary for livestock to continue production in adverse conditions. Genetic diversity within a population enables genetic adaptability for livestock to withstand issues that may be altering production. Previous research revealed that genetic structure exists among Hereford cattle sampled from climate zones within the U.S. The cattle genetic structure was identified in allele frequencies of SNP that were associated with traits responsive to climate. Results revealed partitioning of the breed based on ...
