Relationship coefficients are traditionally based on pedigree data. Today, they are often replaced by coefficients calculated from molecular data, for example, microsatellites-based relationships for bio-diversity studies or genomic relationships for prediction of breeding values. However, in many situations, optimal combination of both sources would be the best solutions; i.e. when population is incompletely genotyped or when pedigree information is sparse. Also even dense markers do not reflect the whole genome. The objective of this study was to applied a new method to calculate a relationship matrix by the combination of molecular and pedigree data on Brandrood cattle. The results showed that combining marker and pedigree information produced more accurate A-matrices what will be useful for future management of the breed genetic variability. [less ▲]
