We review genetic variance parameter estimation. We concentrate on non-Bayesian estimation. Bayesian methods will be covered in a companion paper by Professor Gianola. My prior belief is that his paper will be a tour-de-force. I am more interested in concentrating on obtaining appropriate data and fitting appropriate models rather than using a paradigm that insists on using prior beliefs however (in)substantial. Given the context it is interesting to review the progress in terms of previous Congresses.
