Statistical Methods in Animal Breeding
with an emphasis on analysis of categorical data
Students will be introduced to the analysis and interpretation of generalized linear mixed models. While the students will be introduced to the underlying statistical foundations the focus will be on the analysis and interpretation. Most of the analyses will be done using ASREML and GLIMMIX procedure in SAS. Students in the course should be familiar with linear mixed models.
