Abstract

This paper discusses the inference of parental genotype based on segregation data from selfed progeny of allopolyploids when there is incomplete information about genotypes and when alleles are codominant or null. The distinct alleles that are present in a genotype are assumed to be known, but not the frequency with which they occur. These assumptions may be appropriate when genotypes are deduced from DNA or protein banding patterns on electrophoretic gels. A computer program, SELF, is described that can generate all possible parental genotypes and rank them on the basis of their agreement with the progeny data. The program caters for tetraploids, hexaploids and octoploids. The methods are illustrated using data from a study of the inheritance of isoenzymes in selfed progeny of octoploid strawberry cultivars.
