ASI 872 - Applied Variance Component Estimation in Livestock Genetics

Credits: 1

The goal of this course is to extend upon content covered in linear models and genetic prediction, with specific emphasis on estimation of (co)variance components and genetic parameters required to solve mixed models typical in livestock genetics. Upon successful completion of this module, students should have an applied knowledge of approaches used to estimate the G and R sub-matrices of the mixed model equations. Several tools will be used to demonstrate the models and approaches most commonly used in parameter estimation. Where appropriate, scientific literature that explains their implementation, and some attributes of the solutions obtained will be used.
