Physiological challenges in poultry breeding

Code: 9781786767738
Douglas D. Rhoads and Robert F. Wideman Jr., University of Arkansas, USA

Chapter synopsis: This chapter discusses some of the different aspects of physiological limitations of concern in poultry breeding and production. It then covers research to map the genetic determinants of ascites, including recent successes in identifying the genetic determinants of ascites. The chapter shows how this approach could be applied to a multitude of physiological, multi-genic traits.
