Abstract

Jinnan cattle, one of the five major breeds of Chinese yellow cattle, are the traditional draft and beef breed in southern Shanxi province, China. Our study aimed to search genes that will allow the selection of important economic traits through selection signature detection, which can help in discovering the action mechanism of positive selection in the variety breeding process of Jinnan cattle.

Keywords: breeding, integrated haplotype score, Jinnan cattle, selection signature
