Abstract: Genetics is the mother of breeding and statistics is the only tool to analysis genetic data to arrive at conclusions which hold good in general with a high degree of accuracy and precision. Biometrical genetics is a branch of genetics that uses various statistical concepts and methods to study the genetical research problems. This may be divided into two major parts namely, population Genetics and Quantitative Genetics. Population genetics deals with the gene frequencies, genotypes and phenotypes in the Mendelian population.
The heredity units which are transmitted from one generation to the next generation are called ‘Genes’. In the population genetic, individual genes have no meaning. It is the gene pool consists of population that matters. The gene pool consists of all the genes in all their allele forms in the reproductive gamates of the population. It is described as total genetic information possessed by a population which is available to next generation.
One of the basic Idea of population genetics is the Gene Frequency. If the gene frequencies of certain genes are estimated, then the expected genotypic frequency of the next generation can be calculated in a Random Mating.
