Important SNPs Identification from the Economic Traits for the High Quality Korean Cattle

고품질 한우를 위한 여러 경제형질에서의 주요 SNP 규명

  • Published : 2009.01.31


In order to make the high quality Korean cattle, it has been identified the gene markers which influence to various economic traits. To identify statistically significances among SNP markers, Lee et. al. (2008b) identified SNP(19_1)$^*$SNP(28_2) marker was an important marker in LMA(longissimus muscle dorsi area). In addition, CWT(carcass cold weight) and ADG(average daily gain) are applied for expanded multifactor dimensionality reduction (expanded MDR) method from the comprehensive economic traits. The results showed that SNP(19_1)$^*$SNP(28_2) interaction marker was good and a very meaningful for economic traits.
