Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) is a topic of major agricultural significance for efficient livestock production. This advanced-level textbook covers all the statistical methods that have been used or proposed for detection and analysis of QTL and marker- and gene- assisted selection in animal genetics and breeding, as well as new advances that have revolutionized the field since the first edition.
...the book is certainly a must-have for anyone involved in the statistical analysis of QTL studies in livestock... and (is) a useful textbook for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students - Chris Haley, Roslin Institute, on the first edition."
