In the past year, the procedures for generating EBVs using DNA have been extended to include the possibility to do initial ranking of populations where pedigree information is lacking. This is particularly useful if larger populations need to be judged for quality using DNA.
VHLGenetics is now able to offer the statistical calculations needed to generate gEBVs through our partners in France, Switzerland, Germany and the United States. These test allows for the assessment (calculations) of local gEBVs. In some cases, VHLGenetics is only able to upload the DNA-results, whereas it is not possible to nominate animals.
An overview of these EBVs using DNA is available at our webshop Cattle, category Genome Scan.
