June 1-10, 2009
Offered in two modules:
Module A: Basics of QTL mapping and MA-selection (June 1-4)
Intended for those with limited background in these areas; provides basis for Module B
- Quantitative genetic basis for the use of linkage and linkage disequilibrium for QTL detection and marker-assisted genetic evaluation.
- Quantitative genetic basis of marker-assisted selection and prediction of response to marker-assisted and genomic selection
Module B: Genomic Selection (June 5-6 and 8-10)
- Statistical, quantitative, and computational aspects of genomic selection.
- Strategies for implementation of genomic selection.
Prerequisites: Graduate-level course in quantitative genetics.
Basic understanding of molecular genetics and QTL mapping.
E.g. at the level of Falconer & MacKay )
Mixed linear model methodology
