Pleiotropic model of maintenance of quantitative genetic variation at mutation-selection balance.

Abstract

A pleiotropic model of maintenance of quantitative genetic variation at mutation-selection balance is investigated. Mutations have effects on a metric trait and deleterious effects on fitness, for which a bivariate gamma distribution is assumed. Equations for calculating the strength of apparent stabilizing selection (V(s)) and the genetic variance… (More)
