Structural assessment of backcrossing using microsatellite markers (Short communication)

  • 2008
  • Issue: 4
  • Volume: 38
N.O.M. Tshipuliso, L.J. Alexander, A. Kotze, K. Ehlers, V.L. Reisenauer Leesburg and M.D. MacNeil Page: 290 - 292

Backcrossing, coupled with marker or gene assisted selection, can be used to introgress a specific gene or chromosomal region from one population into another. The objective of this study was to assess the genomic structure of cattle produced by backcrossing…
