The intended audience of this textbook are plant and animal breeders, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in biological and agricultural science majors. Statisticians who are interested in understanding how statistical methods are applied to genetics and agriculture can benefit substantially by reading this book. One characteristic of this textbook is represented by three chapters of technical reviews for Mendelian genetics, population genetics and preliminary statistics, which are prerequisites for studying quantitative genetics. Numerous examples are provided to illustrate different methods of data analysis and estimation of genetic parameters. Along with each example of data analyses is the program code of SAS (statistical analysis system).
