|Identified genomic regions that might allow an increase in meat production|
Positive selection increases the frequency of favorable alleles, causing special genomic patterns in the vicinity of these alleles that are named signatures of selection. Domestication, breed formation and selection schemes causes positive selection and promotes genomic signatures of selections. The identification of signatures of selection is currently a huge interest of population gen...
When genomic regions under influence of selection are identified, these regions are called selection signatures. Probably, the change of the genetic constitution is associated with the proximity of these regions with a potential QTL for the trait selected. So, this study has the aim to find selection signatures in Nellore cattle that can be used to identify QTLs. Firstly, it will be mad...
Approaches combining different univariate statistics into a unique composite metric are suggested improving the power to discern true selection signatures in population genomic data. Here we proposed the genome-wide scan for selection signatures in Nelore and Angus breeds, applying the 'de-correlated composite of multiple signals' method (DCMS), which gather a total of eight distinct st...
Identified genomic regions under influence of selection are termed as selection signatures. The changes of the genetic constitution might be associated with be proximity of these regions with a potential QTL for the trait selected. So, this study has the aim to find selection signatures in Nellore cattle from comparisons methods. It will be use data of 771 animals belonging to experimen...
