Heritability and genetic correlations
estimates were obtained from the ratios of estimated (co)variance components.
to morphological traits of small abalone Haliotis diversicolor.
However, we have no relevant data on diet for our subjects, still less on genetic influences on diet, and we cannot yet identify the reason for the genetic correlation
between As and Hg concentrations.
2004), if two traits present a favorable genetic correlation
, it is possible to obtain gains for one of them by indirect selection in the other associated trait, and that this selection can often result in quicker progress than a direct selection of the desired trait.
These have included such topics as the genetic correlation
between autistic children and family members, autistic children with chronic GI disease, and levels of metallothionein in autistic children and their families.
It can also be observe low and negative genetic correlation
between the extreme controls (5 and 305).

Data from Line 1 also contributed to the first estimates of heritability and genetic correlation
for beef cattle.
Data analyses from the 1981 Australian twin panel cohort confirm a positive genetic correlation
between regular smoking and the risk of alcohol dependence that remains significant, even when sociodemographic and personality variables as well as histories of other psychopathologies are taken into account.
What's more, Zuckerman says he hasfound a significant genetic correlation
for the trait of sensation-seeking.
It has been reported that there is a negative or very low genetic correlation
between reproductive traits and meat productivity and quality traits (Ducos and Bidanel, 1996; Clutter and Brascamp, 1998; Chen et al.
Heritability, genetic correlation
, and repeatability are the 3 most important parameters in animal breeding research.
For example, both in selected lines and inbred strains of mice a highly consistent, negative genetic correlation
exists between free-choice alcohol consumption and alcohol withdrawal.
