DNA microsatellites linked to quantitative trait loci affecting antibody response and survival rate in meat-type chickens.
Selection for immune response parameters may lead to improved general disease resistance. Because disease resistance and immune response are hard-to-measure quantitative traits with low to moderateExpand

Breeding tomatoes for salt tolerance: inheritance of salt tolerance and related traits in interspecific populations
SummaryInterspecific segregating populations derived from a cross between tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) cv ‘M82-1 -8’ (M82) and the wild species L. pennellii accession LA-716 (Lpen716) were usedExpand

QTLs detected in a multigenerational resource chicken population.
The genetic structure of resource populations affects the power of tests to detect associations between DNA markers and complex traits. Following a chicken interline cross (White Plymouth RockExpand

Estimating heritability and genetic correlation between traits from generations F2 and F3 of self-fertilizing species: a comparison of three methods
SummaryThree methods of estimation of heritability and genetic correlation between traits in the F2 and F3 generations of self-fertilizing species were compared. The methods were:1.Subtracting theExpand

Replicated divergent selection of broiler chickens for high or low early antibody response to Escherichia coli vaccination.
Four sublines of broiler chickens were selected from a base population for three generations for high or low antibody response to vaccination with Escherichia coli at 10 days of age. Two sublinesExpand

Direct and correlated responses to multitrait, divergent selection for immunocompetence.
Leghorn lines had been selected for an immunocompetence index based on four traits: antibody production to Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) and Pasteurella multocida (PM) vaccines, reticuloendothelialExpand

Genetic and phenotypic correlations between antibody responses to Escherichia coli, infectious bursa disease virus (IBDV), and Newcastle disease virus (NDV), in broiler lines selected on antibody
The genetic control of antibody (Ab) response to Escherichia coli (EC), infectious bursa disease virus, and Newcastle disease virus and the genetic and phenotypic correlation between these AbExpand

Genotype by environment interactions in poultry.
Genotype by Environment interactions (GxE) have been intensively investi­ gated in poultry. Results indicate that greater GxE effects were associated with traits having lower heritabilities. It isExpand

Microsatellite polymorphism between and within broiler populations.
Two independent broiler chicken populations were genotyped with microsatellite markers to determine genetic polymorphisms within and among broiler populations. Birds were genotyped with primers fromExpand
