Genome Web webinar (Dec 13, 2021):
COLLABORATIVELY DESIGNED GENOMIC TOOLS TO MAXIMIZE BOTH GENETIC GAIN AND ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY IN AQUACULTURE BREEDING PROGRAMS
Genomics can deliver great benefits to aquaculture breeding programs, including efficient management of diversity and inbreeding, accurate parentage assignment, optimal mating designs, improved breeding value prediction, selection decisions, and breeding strategies. In this presentation, Dr. Klara Verbyla explains why using the appropriate platform for the population of interest is critical and how it is possible to keep costs reasonable with optimal outcomes through the creation or use of a collaboratively designed universal genotyping platform.
