Egbert F. Knol spends much of his time researching Litter, Birth weight, Weaning, Animal science and Heritability. His Litter research includes elements of Parity and Sire. His Birth weight study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Small intestine.
His work carried out in the field of Weaning brings together such families of science as Survival rate, Nursing and Genetics. His research in Animal science intersects with topics in Lactation and Gestation. He has researched Heritability in several fields, including Kin selection, Group selection, Genetic correlation and Statistics.
His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Genetics, Litter, Quantitative trait locus and Genetic variation. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Birth weight, Genetic correlation and Lactation. His work in Birth weight addresses subjects such as Gestation, which are connected to disciplines such as Fetus.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ovulation, Parity, Purebred, Reproduction and Insemination. While the research belongs to areas of Reproduction, Egbert F. Knol spends his time largely on the problem of Veterinary medicine, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Heritability and Loin. His Quantitative trait locus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Allele and Genetic association.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Litter, Crossbreed, Genetic variation and Heritability. The various areas that Egbert F. Knol examines in his Animal science study include Ovulation, Pregnancy, Feces, Semen and Repeatability. His Litter research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Birth weight, Nutrient and Weaning.
Egbert F. Knol interconnects Genetic correlation and Sire in the investigation of issues within Crossbreed. His Genetic variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Veterinary medicine, Genetic analysis and Animal welfare. The concepts of his Heritability study are interwoven with issues in Statistics, Disease, Parity and Random effects model.
Egbert F. Knol mainly investigates Animal science, Genetic variation, Litter, Quantitative trait locus and Genetic correlation. His studies in Animal science integrate themes in fields like Ovulation, Pregnancy, Follicular phase and Semen. His Genetic variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetic analysis, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Animal welfare and Candidate gene.
His Litter study which covers Birth weight that intersects with Weaning, Follicle, Lactation and Reproduction. His Quantitative trait locus research incorporates themes from Statistics, Best linear unbiased prediction and Genetic association. Egbert F. Knol has included themes like Crossbreed, Animal breeding and Sire in his Genetic correlation study.
