A8: Only Robust: Development of a SNP-Chip for the Genomic Selection of Metabolic-Robust Dairy Cows.

PhD student: Ngoc Thuy Ha
Thesis Committee: Prof. Henner Simianer, Prof. Martin Schlather

During calving and lactation, dairy cows face a high metabolic challenge. The PhD thesis deals with cows that fail to adapt to this situation on a genetic level. The results are then applied to develop a SNP chip for an efficient breeding of ‘robust’ cows.
