Gene Action, genetic variances & effects, & mean; 2. Inbreeding & mating designs; 3. Diallel analyses; 4 . Generation mean analysis; 5. North Carolina designs I, II, III; 6. Path coefficient analysis; 7. Heritability & selection; 8. Heterosis; 9. Genotype-by- environment interaction & stability analyses; & 10. Locating quantitative trait loci.
