Quantitative trait locus-by-environment interaction for milk yield traits on Bos taurus autosome 6.

Genotype-by-environment interactions for production traits in dairy cattle have often been observed, while QTL analyses have focused on detecting genes with general effects on production traits. In this study, a QTL search for genes with environmental interaction for the traits milk yield, protein yield, and fat yield were performed on Bos taurus autosome 6… CONTINUE READING
