This paper presents theory and methods to compute genotypic means and covariances in a two breed population under dominance inheritance, assuming multiple unlinked loci. It is shown that the genotypic mean is a linear function of five location parameters and that the genotypic covariance between relatives is a linear function of 25 dispersion parameters. Recursive procedures are given to compute the necessary identity coefficients. In the absence of inbreeding, the number of parameters for the… CONTINUE READING
