Sonia Bedhiaf. (16/2/2020). Breeding scheme for the introgression of prolificacy gene into Barbarine sheep.
This work is conducted within the framework of CGIAR Research Program on Livestock-Genetics Flagship, and entitled "Research activities on introgression of prolificacy gene into Barbarine sheep" to improve reproductive traits in meat sheep flocks. This project aimed at introgressing the prolificacy mutation into commercial flocks of the Barbarine breed through the establishment of a breeding scheme backed by genomic screening of the mutation.
