Analyzes of genome-wide association follow-up study for calving traits in dairy cattleHöglund, Johanna Karolina; Guldbrandtsen, B.; Lund, Mogens S.; Sahana, G.
AbstractConclusions: The follow-up study for GWAS in cattle will depend on the aim of the study. If the aim is to discover novel QTL, analyses of the COMB dataset is recommended, while in case of identification of the causal mutation underlying a QTL, confirmation of the discovered SNPs are necessary to avoid following a false positive.
