Lactose provides an easily-digested energy source for neonate mammals, and is the primary carbohydrate in milk. Lactose is also a key component of many human food products, though compared to analyses of other milk components, the genetic control of lactose has been little studied. Here we present the first GWAS of milk lactose concentration and yield, investigated in a population of 12,000 taurine dairy cattle. We detail 27 QTL spanning these traits, and subsequently validate...
