Despite preliminary findings to the contrary (Alford, Funk, and Hibbing 2005), thorough examinations of the genetic heritability
of partisanship find a very low genetic component and a strong familial socialization component (Hatemi, Alford et al.
BLUP of trimmed SNPs were better than that of total SNPs in terms of heritability
Selection to improve DSI and HSI will be effective due to the high variability associated with high broad sense heritability
Given that genetic factors exert a large effect on the phenotype and an intermediate to high narrow-sense heritability
was observed, the copper concentration appears to exhibit a qualitative inheritance.

estimate for shell length and shell width based on dam component were larger than those based on sire component.
of adult ADHD appears even higher than that in children: whereas a sibling of a child with ADHD has a 3-4-fold increased risk compared to control children, this risk-increase is 17-fold for a sibling of an adult ADHD patient.
The current study by these investigators of a second cohort of 536 individuals from 162 Hispanic families found that insulin clearance was indeed a highly heritable trait, with an age-, sex- and body mass index-adjusted heritability
rate of 70.
A high level of physical activity significantly modified the heritability
