A general method of estimating genetic parameters in a selected sample, with an application to selection on an index based on three traits


, : A general method of estimating genetic parameters in a selected sample, with an application to selection on an index based on three traits. Annales de Genetique et de Selection Animale 13(3): 281-292

Selection may bias genetic parameters. A method of estimating the bias is described. This is based on a general method of Aitken (see Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society 4, 106-110), and utilises the phenotypic variance-covariance matrix of the selected parents. More recent results on the bias due to single-trait selection are also considered as special cases of the method.
