What is it about?

Finding chromosomal segments that harbor segregating genes affecting economic traits in dairy cattle

Why is it important?

This information can be used to find the specific DNA polymorphisms responsible for genetic variation in quantitative traits

Perspectives

Although the effects were highly significant, it is still not goint to be easy to find the underlying genes
