[…] in the panel was done via genotyping by sequencing (gbs) according to [71]. a data subset consisting of 2000 snps was used to calculate population substructure using structure 2.2 [72], and a kinship matrix using powermarker v. 3.25 [73] to correct for population substructure during association analysis using the mixed linear model of tassel 3.0.1 [74]. snps within the reported genetic […]

[…] participating in the polyploids projects is gratefully acknowledged., the authors wish to thank dr. jeffrey endelman (university of wisconsin–madison) for the helpful remarks regarding tetraploid kinship matrices, and dr. heleen bastiaanssen (anthura b.v.) for the helpful feedback on the manuscript., , , […]

[…] but can be included analogous to the effect of the variant xa. the background covariance matrix kbg can be flexibly chosen, such as a global kinship matrix to model relatedness [62] or a local kinship matrix to model cis effects that act on the focal gene [19]. in the experiments, we use the realized relationship matrix [62] as background covariance, thereby adjusting for population […]

[…] accomplished using mixed model algorithms such as emma (10) or fast-lmm (11). these algorithms essentially perform a t-test for association while correcting for population structure using a kinship matrix based on genotypes. genome-wide significance is determined using simulation, a bonferroni correction, or a false discovery rate (1, 12)., with only 100 inbred strains in the hmdp, […]

[…] by definition as follows: fij = (qij – qm/(1 – qm), where qij is the probability of ibs for random loci from i and j, and qm is the average probability of ibs for loci from random individuals. pair-kinship coefficients of 0, 0 to 0.1 and 0.1 to 0.5 indicated weak, intermediate, and strong similarity between accessions, respectively [35]. the gd, heterozygosity, and pic were calculated […]
