A meta-analytic assessment of a Thyroglobulin marker for marbling in beef cattle
Wood, Ian A., Moser, Gerhard, Burrell, Daniel L., Mengersen, Kerrie L., & Hetzel, D. Jay S. (2006) A meta-analytic assessment of a Thyroglobulin marker for marbling in beef cattle. Genetics Selection Evolution, 38(5), pp. 479-494.
A meta-analysis was undertaken reporting on the association between a polymorphism in the Thyroglobulin gene (TG5) and marbling in beef cattle. A Bayesian hierarchical model was adopted, with alternative representations assessed through sensitivity analysis. Based on the overall posterior means and posterior probabilities, there is substantial support for an additive association between the TG5 marker and marbling. The marker effect was also assessed across various breed groups, with each group displaying a high probability of positive association between the T allele and marbling. The WinBUGS program code used to simulate the model is included as an Appendix available online at www.edpsciences.org/gse.
