Candidate genes for L28 and L34. a LOD profiles of the identified QTL bins for L28 and GRMZM2G101515 were colocalized with a QTL cluster. The dashed lines show the physical positions of genes. b Candidate-gene association analysis for GRMZM2G101515. The most significant locus is shown in red. The intensity of gray shading indicates the extent of LD (r2) between the most significant locus and the other variants identified in this region. The gene struct.is shown on the x-axis. The black and light-gray shading represents exons and UTRs, respectively. c The linkage disequilibrium (LD) patterns of all identified variants (MAF ≥ 0.05) in genes GRMZM2G101515. d The effect of peak locus for GRMZM2G101515 in an association panel. e LOD profiles of the identified QTL bins for L34 and GRMZM2G022558 were colocalized with a QTL cluster. f Candidate-gene association analysis for GRMZM2G022558. g The linkage disequilibrium (LD) patterns of all identified variants (MAF ≥ 0.05) in genes GRMZM2G022558. h The effect of peak locus for GRMZM2G022558 in an association panel
