Reduced animal model with differential genetic grouping for direct and maternal effects.

Abstract

Mixed-model equations for the reduced animal model with maternal effects and different genetic grouping of unknown parents for additive direct and maternal effects are derived. The matrices that relate the expected value and the variance of the breeding values of non-parents to the parents, as well as the different contributions of parental and non-parental… (More)
