Abstract

The discovery of SNPs was performed using animals from eight European sheep breeds. Eleven SNPs were further characterized using about 1,700 sheep belonging to 57 breeds. A method for the identification of loci that were likely subject to selection was applied; three of the 11 SNPs lying outside the 95% confidence region of the conditional joint distribution of F(ST) and mean heterozygosity were identified as outliers.
