PMCID: 5880813
PMID: 29619232
DOI: 10.1038/s41438-018-0022-5

[…] dna was extracted from fresh tissue of each head with the qiagen dneasy plant mini kit (qiagen, valencia, ca, usa)., qtl mapping on both populations (s88 × lb and pav × par) was performed with qgene v. 4.3.9 software using a scan interval of 1 cm and the single-trait, multiple interval mapping (smim) approach. the threshold for significant qtls was set at the genome-wide α = 0.05 […]

PMCID: 5800283
PMID: 29402302
DOI: 10.1186/s13104-018-3202-3

[…] qtl controlling salt tolerance was identified by single-marker regression (smr), single trait composite interval mapping (cim), and single trait multiple interval mapping (mim) analyses using qgene 4.3.10 []. qtl lod levels higher than 2.5 were significant. the lod plots were created by mapchat 2.2 [] based on the data from qtxb20 and qgene., ‘jidou 12’ showed significantly (p ≤ 0.01) […]
