Table 2 Variance components and broad heritability estimates based on F2:3 data

From: Identification of a stable major-effect QTL (Parth 2.1) controlling parthenocarpy in cucumber and associated candidate gene analysis via whole genome re-sequencing

Variance components PP
σ2 F 39.30
σ2 FS 9.55
σ2 E 123.36
Heritability (h2 B) 0.783
  1. σ2 F is the family variance, σ2 FS is the family × season interaction (F × S) variance, and σ2 E is the residual variance
