From simulation studies it is known that the allocation of experimental resources has a crucial effect on power of QTL detection as well as on accuracy and precision of QTL estimates. In this study, we used a very large experimental data set composed of 976 F(5) maize testcross progenies evaluated in 19 environments and cross-validation to assess the effect(More)
Short interspersed nuclear elements (SINEs) are highly abundant non-autonomous retrotransposons that are widespread in plants. They are short in size, non-coding, show high sequence diversity, and are therefore mostly not or not correctly annotated in plant genome sequences. Hence, comparative studies on genomic SINE populations are rare. To explore the(More)
Potato tuber protein could be a valuable alternative in human and animal nutrition due to its adequate nutritional value and competitive protein yield per hectare. In this study, crude protein content (CPC) and dry matter content (DMC) of potato tuber samples (n = 117) prepared in different ways (fresh and dried samples) were analysed to develop practicable(More)
Beavis’ (1998) study on “power, precision, and accuracy” of QTL mapping is a classic. His work (first reported at a symposium in 1994) was the first demonstration of the effects of small sample sizes on the reliability of QTL mapping. This work demonstrated that when sample sizes (n) were small, power to detect true QTL was low, and the bias in the(More)
