Genetic Evaluation: Challenges and Solutions

Genetic evaluation faces the challenge of obtaining accurate and comprehensive data on individuals, especially in large populations. Incomplete or missing data can significantly impact the accuracy and reliability of genetic evaluations. Another challenge lies in accounting for environmental factors that can influence the expression of genetic traits, making it difficult to isolate genetic effects. The availability of genetic markers that adequately represent the entire genome poses a challenge, as current marker sets may not capture the full genetic variation. Ensuring the consistency of genetic evaluation across different populations or breeds is a challenge due to genetic differences and varying environmental conditions. The rapid advancement of genetic technologies requires continuous adaptation of evaluation methods to keep up with new discoveries. Genetic evaluation can be hampered by the lack of standardized protocols and guidelines, leading to inconsistencies and difficulties in comparing results.
