Associations between microsatellite markers and traits related to growth and fatness were investigated using resource broiler population. A sire-line x dam-line F1 male was backcrossed to 12 dam-line females to produce 24 sires and 47 dams of the backcross 1 (BC1) generation. These 71 parents were genotyped with 76 microsatellite markers. Following full-sib mating among the parents, 234 BC1-F2 progeny were phenotyped for five growth traits (body weight at 49 days from hatch, wog weight, front… CONTINUE READING
