Genetic variability in three Italian beef cattle breeds derived from pedigree information



Genetic variability in three Italian beef cattle breeds derived from pedigree information



Italian Journal of Animal Science 5(2): 129-137



The aim of the present work was to estimate the genetic variability of Chianina (CH), Marchigiana (MC) and Romagnola (RO) breeds using pedigree information. Different approaches based on probability of identity-by-descent (effective population size through an increase of inbreeding Ne) or probability of gene origin (total number of founders f, effective number of founders fe, ancestors fa and founder genomes fg) were used.
