Inbreeding and Linebreeding

This page is still unfinished, but I often get questions about corss-breeeding, inbreeding, and linebreeding.

There is a lot of confusion, so I will add more information here as I find the time.

For starters, this is a brief video I made that shows how genes can be passed on through 3 generations. You can see by the colours how much or how little of the grandparents can be passed on to the children. It is true that there are WAY more than 8 genes that get passed on, but it is a mistake to think that we always inherit EXACTLY 1/4 of our genes from each grandparent. The farther down the line we go, the more the actual percentages can vary.

If you wish to play around with this directly, try this link.
