Long-term effects of selection based on the animal model BLUP in a finite population

Abstract

Monte Carlo simulation was used to assess the long-term effects of truncation selection within small populations using indices (I=ωf+m) combining mid-parent [f=(a i+a d)/2] and Mendelian-sampling (m=a-f) evaluations provided by an animal model BLUP (a=f+m). Phenotypic values of panmictic populations were generated for 30 discrete generations. Assuming a… (More)
