Our objective was to perform a genome-wide association study for content in bovine milk of α(S1)-casein (α(S1)-CN), α(S2)-casein (α(S2)-CN), β-casein (β-CN), κ-casein (κ-CN), α-lactalbumin (α-LA), β-lactoglobulin (β-LG), casein index, protein percentage, and protein yield using a 50K single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip. In total, 1,713 Dutch Holstein… CONTINUE READING
