DairyBio: Increasing genomic prediction reliability

About DairyBio, Dairy Cattle

Western Dairy REO Jess Andony talks to Agriculture Victoria researcher leader, DairyBio project leader and La Trobe Uni Professor Hans Daetwyler about how DairyBio focused on finding better genetic markers for key traits to increase the reliability of genomic prediction. The custom XT SNP chip developed by DairyBio allows higher precision and was assisted through the 1000 genomes project that is an international collaboration. The SNP chips are available for every genotyping provider in Australia.
