The spawning procedure used to produce the NJ and NR half-sib
families was the same as described by Ky et al.
25 for half-sib
and 0 for unrelated, we used three estimates of relatedness coefficients: rxyW, (Wang, 2002) rxyLR(Lynch and Ritland, 1999) and rxyQG (Queller and Goodnight, 1989).
The completely randomized design was used, where the treatments were those 29 half-sib
progenies (1-29), with four replicates with 50 seeds each one.
The Barbacena white maize landrace has been structured in half-sib
progenies and subjected to selection among and within the half-sib
Based on genetic component estimates (Table 3), the heritability estimates of the PE trait are in line with results obtained by Sawazaki (1996), which ranged from 60 to 90% in popcorn half-sib
Differences between WHS and SFHS persistence for any genotype were not observed until 2000 (Table 5) and occurred primarily in the falcata half-sib
A hierarchical ANCOVA was applied to test for the effect of sire on pupal period in the half-sib
design; sex and tray were used as additional factors.
In comparison, inbreeding depression in progenies from crossing between half-sibs
is expected to be one-fourth that of selfing, assuming a linear relationship between inbreeding depression and the inbreeding coefficient, f.
The same half-sib
families were used as in the shoot water potential experiment (one per site).
We reconstructed full-sib families nested within half-sib
families based on the genotype of 90 offspring collected from three different populations for each population separately using the maximum likelihood method implemented in software COLONY 1.
2%, with reciprocal recurrent selection for half-sib
families of common maize, which may be related to the fact that selection in half-sib
families explores only half the additive variance, while the selection of full-sib families allows the full exploration of additive variance.
The expected probability of identity values of 15 MS markers were calculated in random individuals (PI), random half-sib
ABSTRACT Twelve half-sib
groups and 36 full-sib groups of small abalone Haliotis diversicolor were obtained by the unbalanced nest design using artificial fertilization of 3 females by each male.
The Syn1 generation of each experimental OPV was formed at Harare in summer 1997-1898, using 34 plants for each of the selected FS families, dividing the families into two groups, and making half-sib
pollinations among the two groups on at least three dates.
