Abstract

In a diallel cross analysis using doubled haploids, both additive and additive x additive genetic variances can be estimated. In addition, mean and variance of recombination values can also be estimated. Linkage affects the covariance between half-sibs the most, the covariance between grandparent and grand offspring to an intermediate degree and the covariance between full sibs the least. The covariance of parent and offspring is not affected by linkage.
