EuroGenomics Golden Standard

The EuroGenomics Golden Standards are a product from the Harmonization working group, which gathers specialists on genetic evaluation from National Genetic Evaluation Centers and Research institutes/Universities within the EuroGenomics network. The Golden Standards describe best practices for data recording, data editing, precorrections and methods/models, environmental effects and publication (/what information to send to Interbull), based on knowledge and experiences from within the Harmonization working group.
