TABLE 1

Inbred progeny frequencies and genotypic values from crossing a parent homozygous for the increasing allele with a parent homozygous for the decreasing allele at two loci

GenotypeProgeny frequencyGenotypic value
+ +0.5/(1 + 2cij)αi + αj
− +cij/(1 + 2cij)−αi + αj
+ −cij/(1 + 2cij)αi − αj
− −0.5/(1 + 2cij)−αi − αj
  • The loci recombine with frequency cij and inbred progeny are obtained by repeated generations of selfing.
