Methods for mapping QTL are actively used in the chicken to identify chromosomal regions contributing to variation in traits related to growth, disease resistance, egg production, behavior, and metabolic parameters. However, higher-resolution mapping and better knowledge of the genetic architecture underlying QTL are needed for successful application of this information into breeding programs. Therefore, this paper summarizes and integrates original, primary QTL studies in the chicken to… CONTINUE READING
