Mendelian Inheritance and Classical Genetics

Repost Let us review on the basics of breeding…. Mendel’s Laws of Inheritance Law of Dominance  Some alleles are dominant while others are recessive; an organism with at least one dominant allele will display the effect of the dominant allele. Law of Segregation  During gamete formation, the alleles for each gene segregate from each other…

Blood Percentages of Common Inbreeding Patterns

Blood Percentage is related to Coefficient of Relationship (COR) and Coefficient of Inbreeding (COI). Both COR and COI are measure of purity or homogeneity of a mating. While Blood Percentage is typically used by beginners in placed of COR and COI. Without proper selection, the following will be irrelevant: Coefficient of Relationship Coefficient of Inbreeding Blood…

Gamecock Breeding Record – Binary Numbers Gamecock Markings

In the articles, Gamecock Breeding Record – Complete Markings Sheets Gamecock Breeding Record – Complete Markings Matrix the use of binary numbers was introduced for: ease of recall completeness of possible marking permutations The standard marking permutations turned out to be 64 markings. To increase numbers of markings from the standard permutations, the “slit foot web” and…

How To Acquire Molt Game Strain?

Gamecock strains are dead game. If not dead game, it must ONLY be called “fighting chickens”.  All types of chickens as well as turkey, pheasant, quail, etc. are gamefowl. Thus, when a chicken strain is not dead game we can called it “gamefowl”. Selecting brood cock and brood hen are both very important in the…

Can mitochondria be inherited from paternal line?

Repost The article below is the exception to maternal line inheritance of mitochondria in animalia. Other articles of paternal line inheritance of mitochondria are for specific plant species only. It is needed to state that even articles on maternal line inheritance of mitochondria also give a rare chance of inheritance from paternal line or from…
