Inbreeding

Term Definition
Inbreeding
Mating two parents that are more closely related than average in the population. This practice reduces genetic variation by decreasing the proportion of heterozygous gene pairs and increasing the proportion of homozygous gene pairs. In doing so, there is an increased frequency of genetic defects caused by recessive alleles.
