Research Project: Improvement of Genetic Evaluation of Dairy Cattle through Expanded Genomic Data and Improved Computing Procedures

Location: Animal Genomics and Improvement Laboratory

Project Number: 8042-31000-002-02-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2013
End Date: Jul 23, 2018

Improve genetic evaluations provided to the U.S. dairy industry by the Council on Dairy Cattle Breeding through international collaboration by BA researchers on procedures and sharing of full-sequence genotypic data and through BA development of improved computing procedures to process and deliver genome-based information.

Cooperator funding will be used to support travel of BA collaborators to international meetings where advanced procedures for genomic evaluation are presented, purchase and support of computer equipment required for processing of full-sequence data by BA collaborators, and acquisition of sequence data and data on novel traits of economic interest to the U.S. dairy industry.
