Mendelian Inheritance and Classical Genetics

Repost Let us review on the basics of breeding….

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…

Understanding and Quality Control of Gameness

Gameness is also an observed trait (phenotype) of gamecock chickens aside from being inherited (genotype). Male gamecock chickens are game or fight to the death from 5-7 months old.
