Founder specific inbreeding depression affects racing performance in Thoroughbred horses

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5906619
PMID: 29670190
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24663-x

[…] e EBV distributions over time in 10-year bins, which approximately represents one generation interval. We calculated the average generational interval to be 10.5 years using the intgen.f program from PEDIG. […]


Genomic evaluation of feed efficiency component traits in Duroc pigs using 80K, 650K and whole genome sequence variants

PMCID: 5889553
PMID: 29625549
DOI: 10.1186/s12711-018-0387-9

[…] n GPPHD 80K SNP chip. A deep pedigree for these animals was traced back ~ 8 generations. The common ancestors and their genetic contribution to the studied population (1363) were calculated using the PEDIG program []. On the basis of “the proportion of genetic diversity” strategy, as suggested by Druet et al. [], the top 29 ancestors (22 boars and 7 sows) based on their genetic contributions to th […]


Age based partitioning of individual genomic inbreeding levels in Belgian Blue cattle

PMCID: 5741860
PMID: 29273000
DOI: 10.1186/s12711-017-0370-x

[…] han homozygosity-based estimators). This trend was expected since FPED is estimated for a limited number of generations back in time. The average equivalent number of known generations estimated with PEDIG [] was 6.3 for the bulls born after 1999 (it increased from 5.5 for bulls born in 2000 to 7.5 for those born in 2010) corresponding on average to FG-16. The addition of HBD-class R k = 32 allows […]


Portable acuity screening for any school: validation of patched HOTV with amblyopic patients and Bangerter normals

PMCID: 5716052
PMID: 29202721
DOI: 10.1186/s12886-017-0624-y

[…] Alaska Blind Child Discovery has received discounted vision screening technology from several vendors. Dr. Arnold is an investigator and protocol developer for PEDIG. No author or ABCD receives royalties from Precision Vision. […]


Identification of copy number variation in French dairy and beef breeds using next generation sequencing

PMCID: 5655909
PMID: 29065859
DOI: 10.1186/s12711-017-0352-z

[…] [], 180 sires of the 200 sequenced animals were chosen based on their marginal contribution to their population based on pedigree information, as defined by Boichard et al. [], and computed using the PEDIG software []. Eighteen of the remaining 20 animals were sons of some of these 180 selected sires. In addition, two mothers of some of the 18 sons were chosen.Paired-end sequencing produced 71.51 […]


Rapid Discovery of De Novo Deleterious Mutations in Cattle Enhances the Value of Livestock as Model Species

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5597596
PMID: 28904385
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-11523-3

[…] The expected number of affected animals was determined by analyzing the complete French Charolais pedigree (27 million animals) using the Pedig software. In a first step, all descendants of the bull “Invincible” were identified and his contribution to their gene pools calculated. Then, calves born from consanguineous matings were identi […]
