About this book

Bovine Genomics provides a thorough overview of bovine genetics and genomics in the post-sequencing era. Covering the topic from its roots in quantitative genetic through to applications of the most up-to-date technologies, this volume will serve as a definitive source of information on bovine genomics. Bovine Genomics opens with chapters that look at the origins of cattle domestication and Mendelian inheritanceof key traits, then transitions from quantitative genetics to genomics, with six chapters spanning the mapping to sequencing phases of bovine genome research making up the core of the book. The final section focuses on applications of genomic information, including informatics, QTL mapping, marker assisted selection, and the application of genomics to gene discovery. Bovine Genomics will be an essential resource for all researchers and professional working in the livestock and genomics fields.
