Spring 2024 Course Information
Marker-Assisted and Gene-Assisted Selection
||Colorado State University
||1 credit hours - $600 per credit
||February 19, 2024 - March 29, 2024
This course will extend concepts learned in previous courses to include DNA marker information with the objective of increasing the accuracy of selection decision tools. A broad spectrum of material will be presented relative to this ever-changing field of research. The course will cover basic concepts behind marker information, interpretation of molecular breeding values, and inclusion of marker information in genetic prediction. The majority of the course will focus on inclusion of single marker data into genetic prediction. This initial information can then be extrapolated to the use of whole genome information; the course will conclude with an introduction into this type of data analysis.
Prerequisite: Genetic Prediction
