Animal Gene Mapping

Research in genetic mapping is currently one of the leading disciplines in animal science. Data from mapping of genomes in livestock has been found to be of great applied value in agriculture. Genetic maps have allowed researchers to identify chromosomal regions that influence traits of economic and scientific importance.

Dr. Yang Da and colleagues at the University of Minnesota and other institutions have designed computer software for animal gene mapping. Several of these tools are available for download.
