Table 9 QTL effects expressed as differences between marker genotype classes for specific traits

From: Mapping quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for fatty acid composition in an interspecific cross of oil palm

Trait Marker Genotype Mean ± SE
IV CB75A aa 73.26 ± 0.45a
   ab 69.59 ± 0.36b
C16:0 CB75A aa 27.01 ± 0.40a
   ab 30.79 ± 0.39b
C16:1 P4T8 aa 0.52 ± 0.02a
   ab 0.34 ± 0.01b
C18:0 P4T8 aa 1.91 ± 0.04a
   ab 2.19 ± 0.05b
C18:1 CB75A aa 55.15 ± 0.92a
   ab 52.50 ± 0.41b
  1. Means of the genotypes "aa" and "ab" were compared using the independent t test via the SPSS statistical package. The means of the different genotypes for the markers associated with each trait were found to be significantly different
  2. aa: band absent
  3. ab: band present
