Combining evidence of selection with association analysis increases power to detect regions influencing complex traits in dairy cattle

Abstract

Hitchhiking mapping and association studies are two popular approaches to map genotypes to phenotypes. In this study we combine both approaches to complement their specific strengths and weaknesses, resulting in a method with higher statistical power and fewer false positive signals. We applied our approach to dairy cattle as they underwent extremely… (More)
