    The performance of pigs is the result of two influences: genetics and environment. Because the genetics of a pig plays an important role in its performance and meat quality, all pig producers should be familiar with the potential and application of genetic selection. This factsheet provides an introduction to genetic principles and selection strategies for beginning pig farmers. Population genetics by Knud Christensen. This note covers the following topics: quantitative versus qualitative genetics, Hardy-Weinberg law for gene frequency stability in large populations, Relationship and inbreeding, Estimation of breeding values, Inbreeding, crossing and bred structure, Chromosomes and chromosome aberrations, Genetics on hair and coat colour in .

    The Biology of the Guinea Pig focuses on the use of the guinea pig as a substrate in book provides a comprehensive coverage of material related to applied care and management of guinea pigs and their diseases. Topics on guinea pig behavior, genetics, specific pathogen-free technique, biomethodology, and colony husbandry are also covered.5/5(1). The domestic pig is not only of agricultural importance but, as the authors point out, is in great demand as an animal model for many types of biomedical research. The literature dealing with the biology of the pig is large and widely scattered and the book is a sound attempt to assemble pertinent information. Although not newly published () and dealing with a subject in which Cited by:

    Molecular and Quantitative Animal Genetics will be an important and invaluable educational resource for undergraduate and graduate students and animal agriculture professionals. Divided into six sections pairing fundamental principles with useful applications, the book's comprehensive coverage will make it an ideal fit for students studying.   Although animal breeding was practiced long before the science of genetics and the relevant disciplines of population and quantitative genetics were known, breeding programs have mainly relied on simply selecting and mating the best individuals on their own or relatives’ performance. This is based on sound quantitative genetic principles, developed and Cited by:
