Formulas are proposed for iterative calculation of inbreeding and relationship coefficients. With the formulas, inbreeding and relationship coefficients of offsprings can be calculated on those of individuals in parent generation. The formulas are not only used as general form of iterative formulas for regular pedigrees, but also suitable for any irregular pedigrees without generation overlap.
