Restricted maximum likelihood estimation of gametic imprinting variance component in an animal model



Restricted maximum likelihood estimation of gametic imprinting variance component in an animal model



Archiv fuer Tierzucht 37(6): 665-671



The objective of this paper is to present the application of the Restricted Maximum Likelihood method (REML) estimating the gametic imprinting variance component in an animal model. The dominance genetic effects are also included in the model. Iterative MINQUE solution of REML equations is applied for estimating these variance components. A numerical example is added to theoretical considerations.
