    provide evidence that exotic germplasm can be used as a parent for soybean breeding programs to provide new genetic diversity as well as to improve seed yield of US soybean cultivars. Advances in biotechnology and statistical programs have made it more efficient to map the locations of genes and QTL. However, complex quantitative traits including seed yield are often difficult to identify and their use in soybean breeding programs can be complicated by epistasis, QTL by genetic background interactions

  • Inbreeding Depression By Environment Interactions Essay

    1161 Words  | 5 Pages

    Inbreeding Depression Inbreeding depression is a widely-studied topic in the fields of not only genetics, but as well as the fields of biology, ecology, etc. Directly speaking, inbreeding depression results in the loss or reduced expression of a trait due to the mating between two closely related organisms (Hartl 547). As of today, there are a plethora of studies and evidence that explain how and why inbreeding occurs within populations even though it is deleterious for the populations. However,

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Selective Breeding

    1106 Words  | 5 Pages

    Selective breeding is the process by which humans reproduce other animals and plants of special features. Typically, strains that are selectively bred are domesticated, and livestock is normally done by a professional breeder, Livestock animals are known as races, while high plants are known as the varieties cultigens, or cultivars. The offspring of two purebred animals, but of different races is called a crossover, and hybrid plants are called hybrids.[1] There are two approaches or types of artificial

  • The Two Breed Crossbreeding System

    this portion of the herd is charged with producing replacement females for the entire herd, so maternal traits of the breeds included are very important. In this system approximately half of the cow-herd is committed to the rotational portion of the breeding system and half to the terminal sire portion. This system retains about 90% of the maximum calf heterosis plus capitalizes on 67% of the maximum dam heterosis; it should increase weaning weight per cow exposed by approximately 21% as calculated by

  • Artificial Selection: Two Pros And Cons Of Artificial Selection

    There are many different types of breeding, but two main types are selective and natural breeding. Both of these types of breddings are involved in something else and are nothing like each other. Each breeding causes something else, and is involved with another part of their environment. To begin, natural selection and artificial selection are drastically different. Natural selection is the process by which varied traits that increase survival and enable reproduction are passed down from one generation

    For being man’s supposed best friend, humans too often make choices to benefit themselves instead of dogs. People decide what traits make a dog cute and disregard what traits make them healthy.
