Pleiotropy has played an important role in understanding quantitative traits. However, the extensiveness of this effect in the genome and its consequences for plant improvement have not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to identify pleiotropic quantitative trait loci (QTLs) in maize using Bayesian multiple interval mapping. Additionally, we sought to obtain a better understanding of the inheritance, extent and distribution of pleiotropic effects of several components in maize… CONTINUE READING
