This section incorporates all aspects of complex trait and quantitative genetics including but not limited to: mapping and association studies, the genetic basis of disease, genetics aspects of breeding and linkage analysis.
Comparative analysis of quantitative trait loci for body weight, growth rate and growth curve parameters from 3 to 72 weeks of age in female chickens of a broiler–layer cross
Comparisons of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for growth and parameters of growth curves assist in understanding the genetics and ultimately the physiology of growth. Records of body weight at 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 ...
