This course will increase student understanding of best linear unbiased prediction and develop skills in genetic prediction. A wide array of material will be covered with emphasis on real-world datasets designed to develop applied analytical skills relative in animal breeding. Topics will include data integrity diagnosis, contemporary grouping strategies, adjusting for known non-genetic effects, the AWK Programming Language, UNIX/Linux scripting, and use of the Animal Breeder's Toolkit to perform genetic evaluations. Students will develop procedures for the utilization of various sources of information for the calculations of predictions of genetic merit in the form of estimated breeding values.
Prerequisite: Linear Models in Animal Breeding

Approximately three weeks before the first day of class at Colorado State University, the CSU campus coordinator, Mary Colasanti
, emails course access instructions to students for courses taught by CSU. Using these instructions, students create their Colorado State eID (electronic identity). Students meeting all deadlines for eID creation and submission will have access to RamCT by the first day of class.
This course does not require an exam proctor.
This course does not include synchronous components.
