Usefulness of muscle structure traits in selection - a model experiment on laboratory mice



Usefulness of muscle structure traits in selection - a model experiment on laboratory mice



Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics 106(3): 208-216



Data on growth and muscle measurements of 2502 sons of 440 sires were used to estimate genetic parameters (9 traits). The genetic correlations of muscle traits with growth were generally positive and high. The simulated responses to index selection for muscle traits and/or growth are tabulated.
