Genome Based Prediction of Time to Curd Induction in Cauliflower

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5807883
PMID: 29467774
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00078

[…] onstructed with MapMaker 3 by simultaneous multipoint-analysis using the Haldane function (; ). On basis of the results of parameterization trials, QTL analyses were conducted on LAR, S, and T0 using PlabQTL 1.2 (). Composite interval mapping (CIM) based on multiple regression with co-factors was applied (; ; ; ). The LOD threshold to define a significant QTL was 2.5. The linkage map was drawn wit […]


Mapping QTLs Controlling Flowering Time and Important Agronomic Traits in Pearl Millet

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5742331
PMID: 29326729
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01731

[…] /EXP 3.0 program (Lander et al., ) using Haldane mapping function.Correlation analysis was performed with PROC CORR in SAS to obtain phenotypic association among traits. QTL analysis was performed by PLABQTL software (Utz and Melchinger, ) through composite interval mapping (CIM) method with 2 cM walk speed to detect putative QTLs on the linkage groups. A minimum log of the odds (LOD) threshold of […]


Mapping Quantitative Trait Loci Controlling High Iron and Zinc Content in Self and Open Pollinated Grains of Pearl Millet [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.]

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5120122
PMID: 27933068
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2016.01636

[…] .5 ppm, while the remaining QTLs were environment specific (Table ; Figure ).Only one QTL, detected in both environments on LG3, was identified in the across-environment analyses. The QTL-ANOVA using PlabQTL showed significant QEI, with adjusted R2 = 18.9% and adjusted additive effect = 8.3 ppm. This same single QTL was also detected by QTLNetwork (Table ) but this analysis failed to detect signif […]


QTLs Associated with Agronomic Traits in the Cutler × AC Barrie Spring Wheat Mapping Population Using Single Nucleotide Polymorphic Markers

PLoS One
PMCID: 4981373
PMID: 27513976

[…] wheat [, , ]. For each SNP, chromosome arm was inferred from the draft sequence of the hexaploid wheat [].Composite interval mapping (CIM) was performed on the least square means of each trait using PLABQTL version 1.2 [] with the following parameters: a minimum LOD score of 3.0, automatic cofactor selection, walking speed of 1 cM, a model to determine additive effects at individual QTL and addit […]


QTL Mapping in Three Rice Populations Uncovers Major Genomic Regions Associated with African Rice Gall Midge Resistance

PLoS One

[…] a consensus linkage map of all SNPs was constructed from the population specific maps using BioMercator v.40 []. Composite interval mapping (CIM) was performed on the mean values of each entry using PLABQTL version 1.2 [] with the following parameters: a minimum LOD score of 2.5, automatic cofactor selection, walking speed of 1 cM, a model to determine additive effects at individual QTL and addit […]


Organ Specific Quantitative Genetics and Candidate Genes of Phenylpropanoid Metabolism in Brassica oleracea

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 4729930
PMID: 26858727
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2015.01240

[…] ea with a total distance of 891.4 cM and a marker density of 3.2 cM/marker. Quantitative trait locus mapping was carried out through a composite interval mapping method (Zeng, ) by using the software PLABQTL (version 1.2) (Utz, ). Individual analyses were carried out for each trait and plant developmental stage (leaf, flower bud and seed). Empirical thresholds were build with permutation tests, wi […]
