Genomic mapping of complex traits across species demands integrating genetics and statistics. In particular, because it is easily interpreted, the R2 statistic is commonly used in quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping studies to measure the proportion of phenotypic variation explained by molecular markers. Mixed models with random polygenic effects have… CONTINUE READING
