The magnitude of the estimates of genetic variance and heritability obtained for MY, FY, and PY suggests that genetic gain can be achieved in the population by selection for increased MY and its constituents of FY and PY (Table 2), as heritability of 0.
2] from sire model, the estimated sire variance for a trait was multiplied by 4, as it is known that sire model can obtain only 1/4th of the total genetic variances.
Eurona is pioneering a unique approach to optimizing drug therapy for individual patients, namely one based on identifying critical genetic variances involved in drug response," said Per Lindstrom, Chairman of the Board of Eurona Medical AB.
The permanent environmental and phenotypic variances presented similar trends, however greater than additive genetic variance, with higher values in early lactation, remaining stable in the middle and increasing at the end of lactation.
As the additive variance represented the higher fraction of the genetic variance, the selection for high copper, iron and zinc in the seeds of the common bean is possible.
In conclusion, it is recommended that in case the main part of genetic variance of any trait is due to the additive effects of the gene, selection can play a great role in breeding method of that trait.
