About this book

Language: Spanish

Quantitative genetics studies the quantitative characteristics, which are all those biological attributes with continuous variation. The vast majority of characters of evolutionary importance and commercial interest in domestic animals and plants are quantitative, so quantitative genetics contributes to an understanding of the adaptation and evolution of living beings and provides the necessary tools for genetics modification and the conservation of biological resources. Likewise, a large part of human diseases are also quantitative characters, so their study is essential for understanding them. This textbook, aimed especially at students of genetics, but also at professionals as a reference manual, aims to outline the foundations on which the subject is based, trying to maintain a balance between the explanation of the most basic concepts and methods of more modern analyses.

Summary in Spanish:
La genética cuantitativa estudia los caracteres cuantitativos, que son todos aquellos atributos biológicos con variación continua. La gran mayoría de caracteres de importancia evolutiva y de interés comercial en animales y plantas domésticos son de tipo cuantitativo, por lo que la genética cuantitativa contribuye a la comprensión de la adaptación y la evolución de los seres vivos y proporciona las herramientas necesarias para la mejora genética y la conservación de recursos biológicos. Igualmente, gran parte de las enfermedades humanas son también caracteres cuantitativos, por lo que su estudio es fundamental para su compresión. Esta obra, dirigida especialmente a los alumnos de Genética, pero también a los profesionales como manual de consulta, tiene como objetivo trazar las bases en las que se sustenta la materia, procurando mantener un balance entre la explicación de los conceptos más básicos y los métodos de análisis más modernos.
