|Abstract: ||This paper explores patterns of genetic diversity near a locus known to have been under selection. The myostatin gene (GDF-8) has been shown to be associated with double muscling, a phenotype selected for in a number of cattle breeds. We examined population genetic parameters for microsatellite loci at varying distances from GDF-8 in double-muscled (DM) and non-double-muscled (non-DM) cattle breeds in order to assess patterns of diversity. A theoretical analysis was also performed to predict the|
