Crossbreeding; Diallel Cross



The diallel method used by Anisman (1976a) involves crossing each strain with every other reciprocally so that, as in this case, the use of three parental strains generates a 3 × 3 diallel table of family means in which the reciprocal crosses, by which prenatal maternal effects can be detected (see Section 9.1), are distributed symmetrically around the leading diagonal formed by the parental strains. Thus there are three F1s and their reciprocals, a total of six families, which together with the three parental strains generate the ninefold table, and allow the consequent multiple comparisons.
