The U.S. National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium (NBCEC) has been involved in the validation of commercial DNA tests for quantitative beef quality traits since their first appearance on the U.S. market in the early 2000s. This paper discusses pre-validation, analysis, and reporting issues based on our validation experiences. Estimates of DNA test performance (e.g. proportion of genetic variation accounted for by a DNA test panel) in representative populations will be required for… CONTINUE READING
