PLBRG 7170

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

This course will provide students with a solid foundation in quantitative genetics theory, as applied to the field of plant and animal breeding, introduce students to modern-day modeling approaches, simulation tools and applications of genomic selection. While the methodologies of plant and animal breeding are distinct in many ways, the core principles are the same, and this course will cover topics in a way that is inclusive of animal breeding applications.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PLBRG 4030 and BTRY 6010 or equivalent.

  • Interpret quantitative genetics research with substantial mathematical and statistical components.
  • Analyze complex breeding datasets using advanced modeling methods.
  • Estimate gain from selection and impact on genetic variance of breeding decisions.
  • Design optimal breeding approaches.
  • Apply quantitative genetics theory to solve novel or emerging breeding problems.
