Abstract

Increasing amounts of information are emerging from new and traditional genetic technologies to identify genes that control traits of economic importance. If poultry breeding is to capitalise on this, methods to validate whether variation within a gene contributes to trait variation in highly selected pedigree populations must be developed. One way in which we believe this will be possible is by association studies, or the candidate gene approach. Association analysis assesses the effect of candidate genotypes on traits, while allowing for additional variables. We present methods to identify and test candidate genes for statistical association with reproductive traits in a pedigree line of broiler breeders...
