SummaryA mixed mating model for many unlinked loci is described. A procedure for estimation of the model parameters (outcrossing rate and gene frequencies), based on a multilocus maximum likelihood equation, is discussed and analyzed for bias, variance, and robustness. Genotypic data from families of known or unknown maternal parentage, or data from progenies of known maternal parentage, are used for estimation. The procedure is applicable to dominant or co-dominant Mendelian genes with two or… CONTINUE READING
