Molecular Markers in Genetic Analysis

Credits: 4

Responsible: Prof. PhD. Monalisa Sampaio Carneiro and Prof. PhD. Rodrigo Gazaffi

Summary: Basic principles for the use of molecular markers and their application in the analysis in genetic studies. Description and characterization of molecular markers. Comparisons of different types of molecular markers and their advantages and limitations. Genotyping techniques by new generation sequencing (Illumina, Sequenon, etc.). Applications of molecular markers in genetic analysis: 1) Molecular fingerprinting: genetic identity certification and paternity test. 2) Construction of genetic maps. 3) Mapping of QTLs. 4) Associative mapping. 5) Wide Genomic Selection.
