The focus of my dissertation project is to determine the feasibility of the application of whole-genome-enabled selection in beef cattle. This project will involve an emphasis on quantitative genetics, including simulation studies and a comparative analysis of approaches for evaluating performance in bulls. Additionally, this project will also involve an outreach component oriented toward large- and small-scale audiences.
