About The Book

Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) is a topic of major agricultural significance for efficient livestock production. This advanced-level textbook covers all the statistical methods that have been used or proposed for detection and analysis of QTL and marker- and gene- assisted selection in animal genetics and breeding, as well as new advances that have revolutionized the field since the first edition.
