Quantitative genetics and population genetics
Lecturer:
Prof. Dr. Henner Simianer, Dr. sc. agr. Christian Reimer, Johannes Geibel, Prof. Dr. Timothy Mathes Beissinger, Cathy Jubin, Dr. Birgit Jutta Zumbach
Course typ:
Lecture
Description:
Contents:
The genetic composition of a population in a single locus model, changes of gene
and genotype frequencies, the polygenic model, components of phenotypic variance,
relationship and inbreeding, heterosis and inbreeding depression, genetic drift, linkage
disequilibrium, selection signatures. All contents are initially taught in theory and are
consolidated in practical computer exercises (some with real data).

Advanced knowledge of the basic model of quantitative genetics, genetic effects and
parameters, breeding values and variances. Similarity between relatives, inbreeding,
crossbreeding and heterosis. Dynamics of genetic variability in limited populations.

Examination requirements:
Advanced knowledge of the quantitative-genetic and population genetic basics of
breeding, ability to apply appropriate methods to real data sets. Final exam with practical
examination on computer.
