POPREP: a generic report for population management

E. Groeneveld, Westhuizen, Bv.d., Maiwashe, A., Voordewind, F., and Ferraz, J. B. S., POPREP: a generic report for population management, vol. 8, pp. 1158-1178, 2009.

Genetic variation provides a basis upon which populations can be genetically improved. Management of animal genetic resources in order to minimize loss of genetic diversity both within and across breeds has recently received attention at different levels, e.g., breed, national and international levels. A major need for sustainable improvement and conservation programs is accurate estimates of population parameters, such as rate of inbreeding and effective population size. A software system (POPREP) is presented that automatically generates a typeset report.
