Prediction of selection response for threshold dichotomous traits.

Abstract

This paper presents a formula to predict expected response to one generation of truncation selection for a dichotomous trait under polygenic additive inheritance. The derivation relies on the threshold liability concept and on the normality assumption of the joint distribution of additive genetic values and their predictors used as selection criteria.
