This paper describes a method for screening animal populations on an index of calculated probabilities of genotype status at an unknown single locus. Animals selected by such a method might then be candidates in test matings and genetic marker analyses for major gene detection. The method relies on phenotypic measures for a continuous trait plus identification of sire and dam. Some missing phenotypes and missing pedigree information are permitted. The method is an iterative two-step procedure… CONTINUE READING
