Occurence of genetic factors for infection resistance in selected breeds of dairy cattle

Project no. QJ1610489
Category PROJEKTY NAZV / National Agency for Agricultural Research PROJECTS
ProviderMZE ČR

1. To characterize the variability of genes affecting the resistance against infections in production herds of dairy cattle in the Czech Republic.
2. To describe the selection processes using the newly developed genotyping assays and to derive the adaptation value of individual mutant variants.
3. To associate mutant variants with available data about the production and health traits.
4. Methodical recommendations will be prepared meeting the demands of breeder unions, breeders and AI firms.
