A number of farmed species are characterized by breeding populations of large full-sib families, including aquaculture species and outcrossing plant species. Whole genome association studies in such species must account for stratification arising from the full-sib family structure to avoid high rates of false discovery. Here, we demonstrate the value of selective genotyping strategies which balance the contribution of families across high and low phenotypes to greatly reduce rates of false discovery with a minimal effect on power.
