Bovine Genomics by James Womack

By James Womack

The genetic details being unlocked via advances in genomic and excessive throughput applied sciences is swiftly revolutionizing our knowing of developmental methods in bovine species. this data is permitting researchers unheard of perception into the genetic foundation of key characteristics. Bovine Genomics is the 1st e-book to assemble and synthesize the knowledge discovered throughout the bovine genome sequencing undertaking and think about its useful program to farm animals and dairy construction.

Bovine Genomics opens with foundational chapters at the domestication of farm animals and standard Mendelian genetics. construction on those chapters, assurance quickly strikes to quantitative genetics and the advances of complete genome applied sciences. major insurance is given to such subject matters as epigenetics, mapping quantitative path loci, genome-wide organization reports and genomic choice in livestock breeding. The publication is a helpful synthesis of the sector written by means of a world staff of best researchers.

Providing wide-ranging insurance of the subject, Bovine Genomic, is a necessary advisor to the sphere. the elemental and utilized technological know-how can be of use to researchers, breeders, and complicated students.
