To accumulate complementary genes into one strain, two crossing designs can be used, single crossing and multiple crossing.
Identification and recombination of complementary genes at different loci can enable breeders to intentionally construct a phenotype that would not be the predicted outcome of a cross (based on the phenotypes of the parents; Xu, 1989; Xu and Shen, 1992b).
In recent work, we have built mathematical models of speciation that are explicitly based upon the accumulation of complementary genes (Orr 1993, 1995; Turelli and Orr 1995).
