Animal breeding, genetics, and genomics is the branch of science concerned with maximizing desirable genetic traits, such as producing animals that have leaner meat. Animal geneticists have identified elements within genes that can enhance animal growth, health, and ability to utilize nutrients. These genetic advances can increase production while reducing environmental. Introduction to Genetics and Animal Breeding: Lecture Notes for Students of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine at the Department of Animal Production, University of Nairobi, Kenya Ulf B. Lindstrom University of Nairobi, - Animal genetics - pagesReviews: 1.
The first section (Chapters 1 to 8) covers topics of classical phenotypic data analysis for prediction of breeding values in animal and plant breeding programs. In the second section (Chapters 9 to 13) we provide the concept and overall review of available tools for using DNA markers for predictions of genetic merits in breeding populations. Per capita consumption of beef, pork, broiler, and turkey meat in the U.S. increased from about pounds in to more than pounds in Animal geneticists played an essential role in keeping up with this demand by providing farmers with improved breeding strategies to produce healthy, vigorous animals capable of using nutrients efficiently for growth and.
Breeding, application of genetic principles in animal husbandry, agriculture, and horticulture to improve desirable qualities. Ancient agriculturists improved many plants through selective cultivation. Modern plant breeding centres on pollination; pollen from the chosen male parent, and no other. the closest to our present understanding of animal breeding. We also know of several definitions of animal breeding in the scientific literature, since the initial one of Jay Lush in "the means available for improving the heredity of farm animals".

The book can be recommended as a useful introduction to animal breeding, for it gets the basic principles and methods across well.
The section on Mendelian genetics is particularly good. The discussion of the traits to be improved is novel (for text books) and useful, with much good common sense and relevant by: An important contribution to animal breeding and disease was the paper by Mercer & Hill (), which exemplified how classic quantitative genetics could be applied to disorders recorded in a binary (all-or-none) manner.
While the concept of EBV was not yet in vogue at that time, the paper dealt with estimation of heritability of liability for Cited by: animal breeding in organic agriculture, as well as an action plan to realise an appropriate system of breeding.

Genetic Evaluation: prediction of the genetic value of an animal for a trait using phenotypic measurements. Usual assumption: infinite number of genes, each having a very small effect. A predicted genetic value for an animal is a single number for a particular trait or a single number predicting an animal’s worth for a linear combination of File Size: KB.
HEREDITY, ENVIRONMENT, AND THE QUESTION "HOW?"1 ANNE ANASTASI Fordham University Two or three decades ago, the so-called heredity-environment question was the center of lively controversy.

Heredity is the passing of traits from parents to offspring. This is the process by which an offspring cell or organism acquires or becomes predisposed to the characteristics of its parent cell or organism. Through heredity, variations exhibited by individuals can accumulate and cause forms of evolution.
