Strategies for marker-assisted selection in pig breeding programmes


, : Strategies for marker-assisted selection in pig breeding programmes. Proceedings of the 6th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Armidale, Australia, January 11-16, 1998 Volume 23: Opening; plenary; technology transfer; beef cattle; dairy cattle; pigs: 503-510

This review starts with a brief discussion of the types of genetic markers and their potential applications, and then considers different strategies for the utilization of marker information in pig breeding. These include marker-assisted introgression, selection from synthetic populations and within-line selection. The improvement in efficiency by using marker-assisted selection in conjunction with breeding value estimation by conventional procedures is examined.
