The course is aimed at tackling problems from practical modern genetic improvement of agricultural livestock and crops. Through the course you acquire theoretical insight into the general design of genetic improvement programs as well as experience from practical examples. Recently developed methods, including the use of genomic data, are considered, and their role in designing genetic improvement programs is evaluated. The objective is that the students will be able to design genetic improvement programs for simple situations.
