In silico exploration of the effects of host genotype and nutrition on the genetic parameters of lambs challenged with gastrointestinal parasites.


An in silico mathematical model was used to explore the effect of, and the interaction between, (i) nutrition, (ii) genotype for growth and (iii) genotype for resistance, on the estimates of genetic parameters for resistance and performance in a population of lambs trickle-challenged daily with 3,000 L3s of Teladorsagia circumcincta.
