Abstract:
The material presented in this submission comprises original research publications by the author in the fields of quantitative genetics in animals and in man. The research on animal genetics was carried out between 1959 and 1968 at the A.R.C. Animal Breeding Research Organisation, Edinburgh, and the work on human genetics from 1968 to 1974 in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Edinburgh. Within each field of study rather more than half of the papers are theoretical or operational in nature, dealing with results of general interest or with new methodology. The rest of the papers are more practical, estimating genetic parameters and responses in animals, or dealing with specific diseases and their prevention in human populations. The object of this precis is to present and integrate the various papers, to describe the main findings of the research and to discuss their relevance in the respective fields.
