Genetics Abbreviations Guide?

Post by JuleeP on Wed Apr 04, 2012 7:38 pm

If someone could make up a quick genetics guide, I think it'd be very helpful to people new to the breeding world (such as myself!). Everyone is using abbreviations, and I can't always make out what they mean. Something sort of like this?:

Spl = Splashed - Dominant (Or recessive/co-dominant, I don't know)

I have a link on my site that has the abbreviations as well as some other good info. I forget the name but it's under links if you wanna take a look :-)

TFM is ok for stuff...I like Finn Mouse better...but neither is completely accurate. http://www.hiiret.fi/eng/breeding/genetics/index.html

A rule of thumb for all genetic symbols...the capitalized symbol is pretty much always dominant to lower case. The only exceptions are a^t (which is recessive on the animal's back, but dominant on the belly to other A locus alleles) and in cases of codominance or incomplete dominance...in which case the capitalized letter is generally the "wild" type or is "more dominant". When writing out the gene code for an animal the dominant allele should be written first... i.e. A/a is correct vs. a/A. With multiple alleles the "more dominant" allele is written first...i.e. c^ch/c vs c/c^ch. Because of this a gene code can give you an idea of how the genes work.
