Just a small review of the articles I went through recently :

  • A surprising results on sex bias in Holstein. Huge impact on the industry could be thought of, if the figure are confirmed and impact better estimated (I mean, conventional semen give 50% of females. So the worst case scenario against which +450 kg more milk at the end of the second lactation could be produced…is not the common situation).
  • Analysis of selective sweep in cattle with sequence data.
  • Some hints on way to correct for population stratification
  • The funny article of the month, a compression exercise with all the results included (Side effect of the OpenData policy ? …lots of information you’ll never really use ?)
