The inbreeding coefficient of an individual, F, is one of the central parameters in population genetics theory. It has found important applications in evolutionary biology, conservation and ecology, such as the study of inbreeding depression. In the absence of detailed and reliable pedigree records, researchers have developed quite a few estimators to estimate F or the genome-wide homozygosity from genetic marker data. The statistical properties and comparative performances of these metrics are… CONTINUE READING
