Genetic evaluation of conformation traits using random contemporary groups and reducing the influence of parent averages

, : Genetic evaluation of conformation traits using random contemporary groups and reducing the influence of parent averages. Livestock Production Science 69(2): 129-137

A model for the genetic evaluation of dairy bulls and cows for subjectively scored conformation traits using random contemporary groups is proposed. Variance parameters for the random factors of the model were estimated for 14 traits in Jersey cattle. Three alternatives for reducing the influence of parent averages on estimated breeding values were compared using the new model.

Fu, Y.Y.; Jia, S.R.; Lin, Y., 1986: Plant regeneration from mesophyll protoplast culture of cabbage. In a study of the F1 hybrid Baochun, it was noted that viable protoplasts aggregated and floated on the surface of the culture medium after 1-2 days of culture, while nonviable protoplasts generally sank to the bottom. Cell division speeded up sud...

A fast multislice sequence that gives proton density (PD)-, T1-, and T2-weighted images simultaneously has been developed. The triple contrast RARE (TCRARE) is based on RARE and uses two interleaved TR intervals to obtain PD-, T1-, and T2-weighted...

We performed arterial infusion chemotherapy and embolization on 22 patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma via an intraarterial catheter, which was inserted in the hepatic artery under laparotomy. The administration frequency of intraa...

A novel class of cell surface proteins are attached to the plasma membrane via a phosphatidylinositol (PI)-glycan anchoring structure, and these proteins can be selectively removed from the cell surface by the enzyme PI-specific phospholipase C (P...
