SNP Marker Effects for Brown Swiss
Calculated April 2013
The absolute value of the marker effects for each SNP included in the genomic evaluations,
are shown below. Markers on the same chromsomes are plotted in the same color, and larger versions of each plot may be
obtained by clicking on the thumbnail image or the trait name. Marker effects are useful for identifying which SNP
have large effects on a trait. For example, there is a marker on chromosome 14 that is in close linkage with DGAT1
in Holsteins and Jerseys. More details about these plots may be found in
Cole et al.'s (2009) paper.
