Assortative mating (Falconer & Mackay: chapter 10) Sanja Franic VU University Amsterdam 2012

2
- ‘like with like’ - reflected in a phenotypic correlation between mated individuals - mating in human populations is assortative with respect to many characteristics, such as stature and IQ - how does assortative mating affect the estimation of heritability?

- degree of assortative mating: correlation r of the phenotypic values of the mated individuals

5
- degree of assortative mating: correlation r of the phenotypic values of the mated individuals - the genetic consequences, however, depend on the correlation m between the breeding values of the mates

6
- degree of assortative mating: correlation r of the phenotypic values of the mated individuals - the genetic consequences, however, depend on the correlation m between the breeding values of the mates - r: observed, m: not

7
- degree of assortative mating: correlation r of the phenotypic values of the mated individuals - the genetic consequences, however, depend on the correlation m between the breeding values of the mates - r: observed, m: not - the relationship between r and m depends on what governs the choice of mates (phenotypic, genetic, or environmental resemblance)

8
- degree of assortative mating: correlation r of the phenotypic values of the mated individuals - the genetic consequences, however, depend on the correlation m between the breeding values of the mates - r: observed, m: not - the relationship between r and m depends on what governs the choice of mates (phenotypic, genetic, or environmental resemblance) - primary phenotypic resemblance: m = rh 2 (h 2 = heritability of the character with respect to which the mates are chosen)

9
- degree of assortative mating: correlation r of the phenotypic values of the mated individuals - the genetic consequences, however, depend on the correlation m between the breeding values of the mates - r: observed, m: not - the relationship between r and m depends on what governs the choice of mates (phenotypic, genetic, or environmental resemblance) - primary phenotypic resemblance: m = rh 2 (h 2 = heritability of the character with respect to which the mates are chosen) - this is how assortative mating is applied in breeding programmes (but NB: in man, assortative mating probably seldomly arises only in this way)

11
Primary genetic or primary environmental resemblance of mates:

12
- occurs e.g. in groups that are genetically or environmentallly differentiated from each other

13
Primary genetic or primary environmental resemblance of mates: - occurs e.g. in groups that are genetically or environmentallly differentiated from each other - this is probably how much of assort. mating in man arises

14
Primary genetic or primary environmental resemblance of mates: - occurs e.g. in groups that are genetically or environmentallly differentiated from each other - this is probably how much of assort. mating in man arises - e.g., SES groups as environmentally differentiated groups: - environment within each group is relatively homogenous with respect to SES → mates within each group are more similar on SES to each other than to rest of the population

15
Primary genetic or primary environmental resemblance of mates: - occurs e.g. in groups that are genetically or environmentallly differentiated from each other - this is probably how much of assort. mating in man arises - e.g., SES groups as environmentally differentiated groups: - environment within each group is relatively homogenous with respect to SES → mates within each group are more similar on SES to each other than to rest of the population - if primary correlation is wholly environmental (m = 0) → no genetic consequences of assortative mating

16
Primary genetic or primary environmental resemblance of mates: - occurs e.g. in groups that are genetically or environmentallly differentiated from each other - this is probably how much of assort. mating in man arises - e.g., SES groups as environmentally differentiated groups: - environment within each group is relatively homogenous with respect to SES → mates within each group are more similar on SES to each other than to rest of the population - if primary correlation is wholly environmental (m = 0) → no genetic consequences of assortative mating - environmental correlation may be the basis of assortative mating on IQ in man - Rao, Morton, & Yee, 1976: r =.5 explained by people choosing a spouse with a similar family background

17
Primary phenotypic resemblance of mates: m = rh 2 cov A1A2 = cov(h 2 P 1, h 2 P 2 ) = h 4 cov(P 1,P 2 ) = h 4 rV P (because r=cov/V → cov=rV) = h 4 rV A /h 2 (because h 2 =V A /V P → V P =V A /h 2 ) = rh 2 V A cov A1A2 = mV A (because m=cov A1A2 /V A ) so that: rh 2 V A = mV A m = rh 2

18
- the correlation m between the breeding values causes an increase of the additive genetic variance, and consequently of the heritability - why?

19
- the correlation m between the breeding values causes an increase of the additive genetic variance, and consequently of the heritability - why? because an increased covariance within groups implies an increased variance between groups (last lecture)

20
- the correlation m between the breeding values causes an increase of the additive genetic variance, and consequently of the heritability - why? because an increased covariance within groups implies an increased variance between groups (last lecture) - the correlations between relatives, however, are increased by more than one would expect from increased heritability alone

21
- the correlation m between the breeding values causes an increase of the additive genetic variance, and consequently of the heritability - why? because an increased covariance within groups implies an increased variance between groups (last lecture) - the correlations between relatives, however, are increased by more than one would expect from increased heritability alone - therefore, 2 meanings of h 2 under assortative mating: - determination of the resemblance betwen relatives (eq. 10.5: h 2 = b/r or t/r) - ratio of variance components (V A /V P )

23
By how much is h 2 increased? Additive variancePhenotypic varianceHeritability 1 generation V A1 = V A0 + 1/2m V A0 V A1 = V A0 (1 + 1/2m) V P1 = V P0 + 1/2mh 2 V P0 V P1 = V P0 (1 + 1/2mh 2 ) h 1 2 = V A1 /V P1 h 1 2 = V A0 (1+1/2m) / V P0 (1+1/2mh 2 ) h 1 2 = h 0 2 (1 + 1/2m) / (1+ 1/2mh 2 ) EquilibriumV A0 = V A (1 – m) V A = V A0 / (1 - m) V A = (1-m) -1 V A0 V P0 = V P (1 – mh 2 ) V P = V P0 / (1 – mh 2 ) V P = (1 – mh 2 ) -1 V P0 h 2 = h 0 2 (1 - m) / (1 + mh 2 )
