(1) Identify knowledge gaps in genomic selection, research through computer simulations to close these gaps, and implement bioinformatic-based tools for data management, selection, and breeding decisions, and (2) conduct genomic selection in at least two commercial poultry lines. Phenotype and genotype two generations from training, then compare traditional selection with two genomic selected lines over two additional generations.
