The workshop will address themes related to:

 

  • New traits

The Interbull Working Group on New Traits aims to identify the next suitable trait(s) to add to the Interbull portfolio. Interbull Centre has revived the invitation to Interbull Service Users and National Genetic Evaluations Centers to complete the “other traits” electronic forms available on the PREP database. During the session, participants will actively help in establishing future priorities.

(WG members: G. de Jong, E. Nicolazzi, T. Roozen, V. Palucci)

 

  • New validation methods in the genomic era

The value of MACE and GMACE depends on the accuracy and unbiasedness of input from the member countries.  The genomic selection has changed the usability of the current trend validation tests.  Also the test of GEBVs needs to be readdressed. The Interbull Validation Test Working Group has been working towards creating a new validation software that could better detect any traces of genomic pre-selection bias both in EBVs and GEBVs. The session will also explore validation approaches outside the scope of the working group.

(WG members: E. Mäntysaari, P. Sullivan, R. Mrode, P. VanRaden, Z. Liu, V. Palucci)

 

  • Future MACE and genomic pre-selection.

The Interbull Working Group on Genomic Pre-Selection and Future MACE was established to provide approaches to increase MACE robustness to Genomic Pre-Selection (GPS) bias. The session will present the latest developments from the working group, including updates on new MACE software to account for GPS effects on the distributions of breeding values over time. Additional speakers will share experiences on dealing with pre-selection effects in national evaluations.
