A series of multivariate mixed-inheritance models is fitted to the data from an outbred-line pig cross commercially used in Norway. Each model accommodates information on polygenic (co)variances between F2 individuals and their F1 parents across the five traits through incorporation of a random animal effect. Considered traits relate to meat quality and are chosen following up the results from a previous evaluation, in which a putative quantitative trait locus (QTL) was identified on chromosome… CONTINUE READING
