(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2011)
Hepatitis B is a worldwide health problem affecting about 2 billion people and more than 350 million are chronic carriers of the virus. Nine HBV genotypes (A to I) have been described. The geographical distribution of HBV ...
Imputation of non-genotyped individuals using genotyped progeny in Nellore, a Bos indicus cattle breed
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-08-01)
This study aimed at imputing non(un)-genotyped sires using a stepwise imputation approach that combines identity by descent (IBD) detection methods with other imputation algorithms. We also studied the effect of using ...
