Percentage of Italian blood, March 2011

Italian origins in the French livestock, March 2011

The number of entries in the database enables new statistical calculations. We studied the percentage of Italian blood in our dogs.
English setters: Italian origins in French livestock
Percentage of Italian blood in dogs produced in France, by year of birth.

Methodology and calculation

The working set ins the setter-anglais.fr database. We keep French livestock that is produced in France. So we start with LOF registred dogs. We eliminate dogs that we identify as pure Italian (imported dogs or French production with two pure Italian parents).

We identify a dog as pure Italian if it registred into LOI or when the calculation shows 100% of Italian blood.

The calculation is made up of 8 generations (if data is available). A dog registred in the LOF and whose parents are unknown is considered 100% French.

Inbreeding, janvier 2011

We have completely rewritten the calculation of rates of inbreeding.

The inbreeding is computed as a percentage of chances for two alleles to be identical by descent. This percentage is called "inbreeding coefficient" (source Wikipedia). In other words, it is the probability that both chromosomes of a pair are identical and come from the same ancestor.

The original version used the method of Wright [Wright Sewell 1992] and its basic formula
Fi = Σ(1 + Fa) (½)m+n+1.
In some cases the limitation to five generations was insufficient and the algorithm generates anomalies in other cases.
After review, we did not adopt the method Hardiman, easy to use and also set up on websites known, but whose results we believe are too rough

The probability calculation is obviously simple in simple cases (inbreeding on one or two individuals), but becomes extremely complex when it relates to lines that intersect and cross over several generations. And computation time also increases...

We used a calculation of 8 generations.
