Abstract

Selection using single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers scattered throughout the genome or genomic selection (GS) is considered. This approach permits simultaneous selection of most quantitative trait loci (QTLs) determining the selected trait. According to expert assessment, GS makes it possible to save 92% of the funds spent on traditional selection and is twice as efficient as the latter.
