Their estimates of the genetic correlations were very consistent with those found in the present study (model II).
Genetic correlations among PS1, PS7, or PS8 and 305MY were close to zero, and close to those reported by Kistemaker (2003), who estimated genetic correlation of 0.
Genetic correlation is an important genetic parameter for animal breeding, which measures covariation between different traits.
If a significant genetic correlation exists between smoking and alcohol dependence, smoking in one twin should correlate more highly in monozy-gotic than in dizygotic pairs, with alcohol dependence experienced by the co-twin.
1993), while genetic correlation between TNB and NBA was very high (0.
A correlation that occurs in both the original selected lines and the replicate lines can be considered highly reliable evidence that a true genetic correlation exists rather than a genetic drift (Crabbe en al.
Genetic correlations between TD milk yield of first-lactation Holstein Friesian in Ethiopian herds ranged from 0.
Finally, we estimated the genetic correlations among the variables as standard product-moment correlations among the family means for all pairs of traits (Falconer & Mackay 1996) For these estimates, we again used the block-adjusted data, and reduced these data to the means of 2 different types of families: (1) the six paternal half-sib families, which provides an estimate of the purely additive or strict sense genetic correlation and (2) the 26 full-sib family means, which, because of the inclusion of the nonadditive influences of dominance and epistasis, estimates the broad-sense genetic correlation.
A genetic correlation between traits results in a correlated response to selection (Falconer, 1981).
The correlated response found for the trait "shell height" suggests a positive genetic correlation between the two traits.
However, the genetic correlation was positive in first and third lactations and negative in second lactation.
This results showed that LP and MS has desirable genetic correlation but does not appear physically.
