Abstract

Proceedings of the World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, 11.747 As gene bank collections develop there are opportunities to collect germplasm using criteria other than random sampling or genetic relationships. For Brazil and the U.S., it has become apparent that sampling based upon environmental adaptability could enrich germplasm collections. By combining current U.S. beef cattle germplasm collection with GIS approaches, areas of sample concentration and underrepresented were identified for Bos taurus taurus and Bos taurus indicus. The methods used in this evaluation can be extended to using genotypes within or among breeds to promote sampling in environmentally unique areas. Keywords: animal genetic resources, germplasm, GIS, spatial statistics
