In this paper we describe a simple algorithm to decompose both inbreeding and coancestry coefficients. The decomposition is performed in pieces coming from each ancestor, including the founders and the Mendelian sampling terms of non-founders. The original algorithm presented here replaces the conventional tabular method formulae with an original set of recursive formulas. We illustrate the procedure with two small examples, including the pedigree of the bull Comet. The procedure was also… 
Genetic Structure Analysis of the Pura Raza Español Horse Population through Partial Inbreeding Coefficient Estimation
The aim of this work was to analyze genetic parameters such as the inbreeding coefficient, relatedness coefficient (AR) and partial inbreeding coefficients (Fij) of the whole PRE population, and the ancestors which account for 50% of the total genetic variability of the current population, from genealogical information.
A multivariate analysis with direct additive and inbreeding depression load effects
The results of the simulation study confirmed the ability of the proposed procedure to predict inbreeding depression loads for all individuals in the populations and suggested a negative correlation of the inbreeding loads with the additive genetic effects in the Pirenaica breed.
Genetic inbreeding depression load for morphological traits and defects in the Pura Raza Española horse
Individual inbreeding depression loads could be used as a tool to select the most appropriate breeding animals and the possibility of selecting horses that have a high genetic value and are more resistant to the deleterious effects of inbreeding should help improve selection outcomes.

A new mixed linear model approach has been developed to account for the inbreeding depression-related background of each individual in the pedigree and must be viewed as a new tool for a better understanding of inbreeding in domestic and wild populations.
Genetic inbreeding depression load for fertility traits in Pura Raza Española mares
The results confirm that individual inbreeding depression loads allow us to select horses that have a genetic value resistant to the deleterious effects of inbreeding, and measure the potential variability, whether expressed in the population or not.
Inbreeding depression load for litter size in Entrepelado and Retinto Iberian pig varieties1.
The main target of this research was to evaluate IDL for litter size in 2 Iberian pig varieties (Entrepelado and Retinto) from a commercial breeding-stock, giving evidence of a relevant genetic background with potential consequences on the reproductive performance of Iberia sows.
Assessing the genetic diversity in small farm animal populations.
The acceptable level for effective population size can be considered from different angles leading to a conclusion that it should be at least 50 to 100.
Optimum contribution selection for conserved populations with historic migration
The most promising approach was constraining migrant contributions while maximizing the conditional probability that two alleles randomly chosen from the offspring population are not identical by descent, given that both descend from native founders.
Using genomic tools to maintain diversity and fitness in conservation programmes
Using the segment‐based coancestry provides a compromise solution between maintaining diversity and fitness, especially when the population has some inbreeding load, and is compared under two contrasting mutational models of fitness effects.
Purging deleterious mutations in conservation programmes: combining optimal contributions with inbred matings
Computer simulations are performed to determine whether managing a population by combining optimal contributions with inbred matings improves its long-term viability while keeping reasonable levels of diversity.


A proximal decomposition of inbreeding, coancestry and contributions.
Both Wright's (1922) coalescence probabilistic method and Caballero & Toro's (2000) method can be used for assessing the overall efficiency of a breeding scheme in balancing genetic gain and coancestry rate, yielding very similar results when generations are discrete.
Gene survival in the Asian wild horse (Equus przewalskii): I. Dependence of gene survival in the calgary breeding group pedigree
Probabilities of gene survival give a more complete summary of the genetic structure of a set of individuals than is provided by more routine measures such as heterozygosity or founder contributions, and provides a new approach to assessing such groups.
Interrelations between effective population size and other pedigree tools for the management of conserved populations.
A new parameter, the effective number of non-founders, is introduced to describe the relation betweeneffective number of founders and founder genome equivalents.
Gene survival in the asian wild horse (Equus przewalskii). II: Gene survival in the whole population, in subgroups, and through history
The genetic diversity of subsets of the current population interesting to the North American Species Survival Plan are calculated, the loss of genetic diversity in this species through its history in captivity is traced, and genetically important individuals in the North America population are determined.
All variation observed between experimental populations in their responses to inbreeding could be attributed to random founder effects, and inbreeding depression for any one fitness component, in the authors' experimental environment, must be due to relatively few deleterious alleles with major effects.
Effect of founder allele survival and inbreeding depression on litter size in a closed line of Large White pigs
An experimental herd of Large White pigs was established in 1931 and maintained as a closed population until 1992 and conclusions about genetic and phenotypic parameters and effects of dam and litter inbreeding on litter size were obtained, using Bayesian techniques.
Partition of the genetic trend to validate multiple selection decisions.
A procedure to partition the genetic trend of a selected population is presented, based on a simple transformation of the predicted breeding values, which shows how the impact of an artificial insemination center in the genetic gain of the whole population can be evaluated.
The spread of genes by natural and artificial selection in closed poultry flock
The pedigrees of birds in a poultry flock under artificial selection were analysed to trace the spread of genes from original flock members and it was suggested that assortative mating would increase the determination of gene spread by genotypic value.
Pedigree analysis by computer simulation
The gene dropping method is applied to analyses of four populations: a colony of small South American marsupials, Monodelphis domestica; Speke's gazelles, Gazella spekei; Przewalski's horses, Equus przewalkii; and American Standardbred horses.
