New breeding tools for improving mastitis resistance in european dairy cattle

Cel

Selection based on phenotypes of disease and fitness traits is difficult, and thus breeding for improved disease resistance would benefit greatly from marker assisted selection (MAS). MASTITIS RESISTANCE aims at fine-mapping and characterising quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting susceptibility and resistance to mastitis in European dairy cattle. Expected results are molecular genetic and statistical tools to improve cattle health either with MAS within breeds or with introgression of favourable QTL alleles to new breeds. The results will also provide a major step towards the understanding of the etiology of mastitis with respect to the infecting pathogen and pleiotropic effects of the QTL involved.
