Selection for a character controlled by additive genes induces linkage disequilibrium which reduces the additive genetic variance usable for further selective gains. Additive x additive epistasis contributes to selection response through development of linkage disequilibrium between interacting loci. To investigate the relative importance of the two effects of linkage disequilibrium, formulae are presented and results are reported of simulations using models involving additive, additive x… CONTINUE READING
