Flashcards in Quiz 4 Deck (14):
Dominance type that is easier to perform selection for simply-inherited traits (homozygotes vs. heterozygotes)
Whose genotype is normally being determined in test matings?
The ability of an individual and its corresponding phenotype and genotype to contribute offspring to the next generation is:
T/F: Breeding value represents only that part of genotypic value that can be transmitted from parent to offspring
Progeny difference= 1/2____
Genotype (G)= Breeding value +
Producing Ability is the performance potential of an individual for a what trait
Give an ex. of a Permanentt Environmental Effect
Which traits have moderate heritabilites (0.2-0.4)?
Name two ways to improve Heritability and Repeatability
Environment and accurate measures
What are the 3 directly proportional facotrs that effect genetic change?
accuracy of selection, selection intensity, and genetic variation
The risk that the true breeding values of replacements will be significantly poorer than expected is:
