Statistical Genetics and Evolution of Quantitative Traits

  title={Statistical Genetics and Evolution of Quantitative Traits},
  author={Richard A. Neher and Boris I. Shraiman},
The distribution and heritability of many traits depends on numerous loci in the genome. In general, the astronomical number of possible genotypes makes the system with large numbers of loci difficult to describe. Multilocus evolution, however, greatly simplifies in the limit of weak selection and frequent recombination. In this limit, populations rapidly… CONTINUE READING
