Domestic animals have a sufficiently old history (thousands of generations) to allow evolution of phenotypes, but also a sufficiently young history (~10,000 years) to allow powerful genetic dissection of phenotypic diversity. Domestic animals are therefore a unique resource for exploring genotype–phenotype relationships. Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL… CONTINUE READING
