Dissecting the genetic basis of natural phenotypic variation is a major goal in biology. We know that most traits are strongly heritable. However, their genetic architecture is a long-standing question, which is unfortunately confounded by the lack of complete knowledge of the genetic components as well as their phenotypic effect in a specific genetic background. Many genetic variants are known to affect phenotypes but the same functional variant can have a different effect on the phenotype in… CONTINUE READING
