An Effect of Scale in a Non-Additive Genetic Model
Author(s): Jason Mezey ,Guenter Wagner

Subject(s): BG.24, CX.35

Category: Brief Article


A model of non-additive gene effects was analyzed with respect to evolutionary dynamics. A major result was the evolutionary dynamics predicted by the model, scales with character value. Such a scale effect is absent in typical population genetic models which consider only additive gene effects. We think that scale effects are a generic property of population genetic models which include gene interaction effects.
