How to use "Inbred" in context?

Inbreeding is a process where two genetically dissimilar individuals are allowed to mate. This can lead to genetic defects in offspring if the inbreeding is frequent or if the parents are closely related. Inbreeding can also occur between family members or between friends. Inbreeding has a negative impact on the genetic quality of a population over time.

Although inbreeding can produce deleterious effects, it is often a necessary step in the inheritance of certain traits. Inbreeding can help to avoid the recombination of harmful mutations, and it can increase the chances of inheriting specific genes.
