Description

The aim of the present project is to create a reference population of animals needed for a reliable estimation of genomic breeding values (GEPH) of traits. Subsequently, to develop a complex system, methods and computer programs for the evaluation of molecular-genetic markers and to determine the GEPH for population of pigs included into the Czech National Breeding Program. Another objective is to evaluate the genetic variability of population based on molecular-genetic information and the possibility to apply the genomic selection for health and meat quality traits of pigs.
