Natural selection results in a nonpoisson distribution of offspring number; because such a distribution would increase the expected inbreeding coefficient (Crow and Kimura 1970), the expected Fs reported in Table 1 are only approximate.
The coefficient F is the average inbreeding coefficient of each subpopulation, and [alpha] = (([F.
Data were analyzed on JMP (SAS 1989) in a two-way analysis of variance with lineage and the inbreeding coefficient f as the two main factors, as described in Pray and Goodnight (1995).
To examine whether the alleles contributing to inbreeding effects were distributed uniformly across founder genomes or were descended from specific founders, the inbreeding coefficient of each pairing was partitioned into components due to each founder of the lab stocks.
Generations are measured from a hypothetically infinite base population (generation zero) in which inbreeding coefficient and coancestry of all individuals are zero.
It is often assumed that the changes in variance that follow inbreeding are constant and predictable: that the amount of additive genetic variance should decrease proportional to the inbreeding coefficient and that the amount of environmental variance should not be much affected or go up slightly by a constant amount.
The low inbreeding coefficient obtained forAdani dairy goat was mainly related to the lack of sire registration in a large number of animals (about 44.
