Study of whole genome linkage disequilibrium in Nellore cattle

Knowledge of the linkage disequilibrium (LD) between markers is important to establish the number of markers necessary for association studies and genomic selection. The objective of this study was to evaluate the extent of LD in Nellore cattle using a high density SNP panel and 795 genotyped steers. After data editing, 446,986 SNPs were used for the… CONTINUE READING
