Computation of inbreeding rate (DeltaF) must consider that inbreeding is delayed with one generation with respect to the idealized population when addressed using individual inbreeding coefficients. The expression relating inbreeding in generation t with inbreeding rate F(t) = 1 - (1-DeltaF)(t) should be more correctly written in real animal populations as F(t) = 1 - (1-DeltaF)(t-1), as changes in allele frequencies occur in the equivalent co-ancestries in the previous generation. This simple… CONTINUE READING
