Génétique et Sélection des Petits Ruminants

GeSPR Research Activities

GeSPR (Génétique et selection des petits ruminants) team is involved in quantitative genetic studies of small ruminants (meat sheep, dairy sheep, dairy goats, Angora goats). Our aims are to better understand genetic determinism of traits and to improve by selection traits of interest for small ruminant industry. Different approaches are developed to estimate genetic parameters, to search for QTL and causal mutations, to explore genetic diversity, to investigate and perform parental assignation, genetic evaluation and genomic selection, with special emphasis on robustness.
