  • Patent number: 10337067
    Abstract: Collections of polynucleotides useful for estimating breeding value or detecting likelihood of twinning are disclosed. The polynucleotides are used to detect genomic sequences quantitatively associated with the twinning trait. Also disclosed are methods and kits for using the collections to estimate breeding value or predict likelihood of twinning.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: March 25, 2015
    Date of Patent: July 2, 2019
    Assignee: Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation
    Inventors: Brian Wayne Kirkpatrick, Eui-Soo Kim, Chad D. Bierman
  • Publication number: 20190059342
    Abstract: Described herein are methods and compositions for modulating bovine birth rate by following a breeding scheme based on the presence of the trio haplotype, which is strongly linked to the propensity to give birth to multiple calves in one event.
