Identifying functional gene variants and non-additive effects to enhance the power of genomic selection of purebred pigs for crossbred performance

2016/17-2019/20 • $408,000
Genetically improving lean meat yield and pork quality is a key approach for the Canadian swine industry to enhance global competitiveness and overall profitability. Genomically enhanced estimated breeding values (GEBVs) are based on DNA marker genotypes and effects. GEBVs are used to increase...

Novel selection strategies for sows and boars to optimize litter quality and performance

2015/16-2017/18 • $300,000
Global, national and regional genetic companies are able to supply the Canadian pork production industry with production sows and terminal line boars with exceptional genetic merit. However, using existing management practices, and because of inadvertent genetic-environment interactions,...

Whole genome association analysis for pork quality in both cross- and pure-bred populations.

2011/12-2013/14 • $953,074
Understanding the genes involved in variation in complex traits in human diseases is one of the most exciting areas of biological research. This area is termed genomics. Genomics technology also offers tremendous opportunities for animal breeders, as it can provide new tools that can be used to...
