Quantitative modeling of Mendelian genetics

Quantitative Genetics with Special Reference to Plant and Animal Breeding provides authoritative guidance on improving genetic material in breeding programs through the application of Mendelian genetics. Beginning with a brief background on genetic modeling and breeding programs, the book compares breeding procedures and selection approaches while offering expert guidance on mathematical and Mendelian representation of various schema. Highly detailed and practically-focused with clear guidance on methods and calculations, this guide provides invaluable reference for the design of breeding programs in the laboratory or agricultural industry.
