Genetic models for quantitative seed traits with effects of several major genes and polygenes, as well as their GE interaction, were proposed. Mixed linear model approaches were suggested for analyzing the genetic models. Monte Carlo simulations were conducted to evaluate unbiasedness and efficiency for estimating fixed effects and variance components of the embryo and the endosperm models, including effects of a major gene from an unbalanced modified diallel mating design with nine parents… CONTINUE READING
