Endogamy in water buffaloes of Murrah dairy breed raised in Brazil
The goal of the present study was to analyze the endogamy of Murrah buffaloes over 5 generations in 10 Brazilian herds. Pedigree information of 5,062 animals born from 1972 on were used. The mean endogamy coefficient and ...

Inbreeding, Average Relatedness Coefficient and Effective Population Size In Jaffarabadi Buffaloes Raised In Brazil
(Int Buffalo Information Ctr, 2013-01-01)
The major aim of this study was to evaluate the inbreeding (F), average relatedness coefficient (AR) and effective population size (Ne) in the Jaffarabadi buffalo breed from Brazil. Pedigree information of 1,272 animals ...
Use of genomic and phenotypic selection in lines for prediction of testcrosses in maize II: grain yield and plant traits
Plant breeders have been trying to predict the performance of hybrids based on their parental performance. One application of molecular markers is its use in selection. The objectives were to map quantitative trait loci ...
Use of genomic and phenotypic selection in lines for prediction of testcrosses in maize I: grain yield and its components
Grain yield (GY) is a direct function of its components and these traits to being less complex and highly correlated with yield. The objectives of this study were to map Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for GY and its components ...

Genetic variability among the wild boars (Sus scrofa scrofa), crossbred animals and pigs using microsatellite markers (STRs)
(Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology, 2011-04-01)
The aim of this work was to study the genetic variability among the wild boars, crossbred animals and pigs using microsatellite markers. Five genetic groups were studied. The fragments of three microsatellites developed ...
