Recent advances in molecular genetic techniques will make dense marker maps available and genotyping many individuals for these markers feasible. Here we attempted to estimate the effects of approximately 50,000 marker haplotypes simultaneously from a limited number of phenotypic records. A genome of 1000 cM was simulated with a marker spacing of 1 cM. The markers surrounding every 1-cM region were combined into marker haplotypes. Due to finite population size N(e) = 100, the marker haplotypes… 
Estimating genetic diversity across the neutral genome with the use of dense marker maps
TLDR
Comparing two marker based estimates of the genetic diversity in specific genomic regions lying in between markers found that for a population with a lower marker density, the IBD-based method gives a better prediction, since variation and recombination between markers are missed with heterozygosity.
Evaluation of a genome-wide approach to multiple marker association considering different marker densities
TLDR
A Bayesian multiple marker approach appears to be suitable for predicting genetic values, even with reduced density datasets where large numbers of markers are not yet available for many species.
Accuracy of Genomic Selection Using Different Methods to Define Haplotypes
TLDR
It was concluded that genomic selection is considerably more accurate than traditional selection, especially for a low-heritability trait.
Comparison of two QTL mapping approaches based on Bayesian inference using high-dense SNPs markers
TLDR
To compare different QTL mapping methods, a population with genotypic and phenotypic data was simulated and two different models, Bayz A and Bayz B, were used to analyze QTL linked to the SNP markers.
Predicting the Accuracy of Breeding Values Using High Density Genome Scans
TLDR
Simulation was used to determine accuracies of genomic breeding values for polygenic traits associated with many thousands of markers obtained from high density genome scans, and use of BLUP regression methods across many chromosomes was found to give rise to reduced accuracy in breeding value determination.
Estimation of genome-wide haplotype effects in half-sib designs.
TLDR
A simulation study was conducted to compare factors that could influence the accuracy of genome-wide selection and found the heritability of the trait, dispersion of quantitative trait loci across the genome and size of the QTL effects were similar.
The Impact of Different Genetic Architectures on Accuracy of Genomic Selection Using Three Bayesian Methods
TLDR
In comparison of three methods, the greatest genomic accuracy obtained by BayesB method for traits influenced by a low number of the QTL, high marker density, gamma QTL distribution and high Ne is obtained.
Genomic selection and complex trait prediction using a fast EM algorithm applied to genome-wide markers
TLDR
An expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm called emBayesB which allows only a proportion of SNP to be in LD with QTL and incorporates prior information about the distribution of SNP effects and its accuracy is similar to Bayesian methods but it takes only a fraction of the time.

TLDR
Simulation results and limited experimental results suggest that breeding values can be predicted with high accuracy using genetic markers alone but more validation is required especially in samples of the population different from that in which the effect of the markers was estimated.
Hierarchical likelihood opens a new way of estimating genetic values using genome-wide dense marker maps
TLDR
Hierarchical likelihood enables estimation of marker-specific variances under the likelihoodist framework and are powerful in localizing major QTL and computationally fast.

TLDR
The observation of long range disequilibrium between syntenic loci using low-density marker maps indicates that LD mapping has the potential to be very effective in livestock populations.
Detecting marker-QTL linkage and estimating QTL gene effect and map location using a saturated genetic map.
TLDR
It was found that reducing marker spacing below the resolving power did not add appreciably to narrowing the confidence interval, so the 95% confidence interval with infinite markers sets the useful marker spacing for estimating QTL map location for a given population size and estimated gene effect.
Efficiency of marker-assisted selection in the improvement of quantitative traits.
TLDR
This work derives selection indices that maximize the rate of improvement in quantitative characters under different schemes of MAS combining information on molecular genetic polymorphisms (marker loci) with data on phenotypic variation among individuals (and their relatives).

TLDR
These findings demonstrate that loci with considerable effects on milk production are still segregating in highly selected populations and pave the way toward marker-assisted selection in dairy cattle breeding.

This approach allows simultaneous evaluation of fixed effects, effects of MQTL alleles, and effects of alleles at the remaining QTLs, using known relationships and phenotypic and marker information.

TLDR
The identity-by-descent approach is extended to derive the distribution of the length of homozygous chromosome segment surrounding a locus which is identical by descent, and it is suggested that a general theory of stability of the genotype in small populations might be based on parameters such as this.

The degree of nucleotide polymorphism across these human genes, and orthologous great ape sequences, is highly variable and is correlated with the effects of functional conservation on gene sequences.
