Abstract

Most genomic evaluation methods have been based on SNP. It has been shown that differences in accuracy of genomic breeding values were small between these methods. The use of a high density chip instead of a medium density one in within breed or multi-breed genomic evaluation leads to relatively small improvements. Haplotypes instead of SNP improve linkage disequilibrium between alleles and potential quantitative trait loci. Here, an extension to haplotypes of GS3, a free selection genomic software developed by Legarra et al. (2013) is proposed.
