The genetic relationship between inbreds i and j can be estimated from pedigree or from molecular marker data. The objectives of this study were to: (1) determine whether pedigree, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), and simple sequence repeat (SSR) data give similar estimates of parental contribution and coefficient of coancestry (f ij ) among a set of maize (Zea mays L.) inbreds, and (2) compare the usefulness of RFLP and SSR markers for estimating genetic relationship.
