Genetically coupled antagonistic coevolution between host and parasites can select for the maintenance of recombination in the host. Mechanistically, maintenance of recombination relies on epistatic interactions between resistance genes creating linkage disequilibria (LD). The role of epistasis in host resistance traits is however only partly understood. Therefore, we applied the joint scaling principle to assess epistasis and other nonadditive genetic components of two resistance traits… CONTINUE READING
