Abstract

A variance-covariance model is suggested for plotting the distribution of a quantitative trait analyzed in animal pedigrees resulting from crosses of outbred lines. The model takes inbreeding into account. A special parameter characterizing the degree of inbreeding has been introduced, which makes the model versatile. Pedigrees with the same structure that contain or not contain inbred individuals have been compared to analyze the effect of inbreeding on the parameters of the trait distribution, such as the genotypic mean and variance of the trait.
