Table 3 Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) identified using single trait-multiple interval mapping analysis for root length (RL), root diameter (RD), surface area of fine roots (SA2) and root:shoot ratio (R:S) under low-P

From: Multiple interval QTL mapping and searching for PSTOL1 homologs associated with root morphology, biomass accumulation and phosphorus content in maize seedlings under low-P

  1. aQTLs are named using the trait initials followed by their genomic position in bin
  2. bcM and Mbp indicate the marker position in centiMorgans and in mega base pairs at maximum LOD value
  3. cFlanking markers are based on −1.5 LOD support interval
  4. dR2: Ratio of the genotypic variance of the QTL effect to the phenotypic variance, times 100
  5. eEffects measured as standard deviation from the progeny mean: Positive values indicate that L3 carries the allele for an increase in the trait, and negative values indicate that L22 contributes the allele for an increase in the trait. Effect significance based on p-values estimated via score statistics resampling (+ p < 0.1, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001)
  6. fR2 T: genotypic variance of the full model
