Intended as a learning text, rather than simply a reference, this work addresses the abstract concepts of animal breeding. It presents the necessary mathematics, but assumes no previous experience in genetics and statistics/5(20). First published in , “Animal Genetics” is a vintage treatise on breeding animals, including fowl, sheep, pig, dog, horses, and cattle. Animal breeding is a branch of animal science that deals with evaluating the genetic value of livestock. Exploring Animal Genetics and Probability T HE STUDY OF GENETICS is extremely valuable to several areas of science. From medical to agricultural applications, the development of new techniques in studying DNA has revolutionized genetics. Objective: Explain the importance of genetics. Key Terms: Animal Genetics Genetics is the study of heredity. predicted genetic value for an animal is a single number for a particular trait or a single number predicting an animal’s worth for a linear combination of traits. Genomic Evaluation: prediction of the genomic value of an animal for a single trait or multiple traits using phenotypic measurements and genotypes for a large number of markers spread.
