R304 Genomic Estimated Breeding Values DE Female

Background

Part of modern day animal breeding is the assessment of the production value of livestock by using Estimated Breeding Value (EBVs). Selection of breeding animals with superior EBVs in growth rate, egg, meat, milk, or wool production, or other desirable traits has revolutionized livestock production throughout the world. Commonly, EBVs are calculated using statistics such as best linear unbiased prediction. In recent years, genetic data based on DNA has been added to the EBV calculations. Phenotypical traits have been related to segments of DNA, making the genetic data a predictive model for the performance of an animal. These so-called genomic EBVs are indicated as genomic EBVs or gEBVs. VHLGenetics is now able to offer the statistical calculations needed to generate gEBVs through its partner the German organization VIT. This test allows for the assessment (calculations) of German gEBVs.

Throughput

The turn-around-time of a test depends to a large extent on the logistics of sample transportation to the laboratory. After receiving the sample at the test location, you can normally expect the result within 10 working days. A longer delivery time applies to tests carried out by a Partner Lab.
