The time of detection of recessive visible genes with non-random mating

  • Armando Caballero (a1), Alison M. Etheridge (a2) and William G. Hill (a1)

Summary

Expressions for the probability and average time of detection of a recessive visible gene in populations where there is partial selfing or partial full-sib mating are presented. A small increase in the proportion of inbred matings greatly reduces the average time until detection and increases the proportion detected. Unless the proportion of inbred matings or the population size is very small, the time and proportion detected are approximately independent of the population size.
