Fourier-transform mid-infrared (FT-MIR) spectroscopy provides a high-throughput and inexpensive method for predicting milk composition and other novel traits from milk samples. Whilst there have been many genome-wide association studies (GWAS) conducted on FT-MIR predicted traits, there have been few GWAS for individual FT-MIR wavenumbers. Here we examine associations between genomic regions and individual FT-MIR wavenumber phenotypes within a population of 38,085 mixed-breed New Zealand dairy cattle with imputed whole-genome sequence. GWAS were conducted for each...
