  • D, posterior mean of the difference; HPD95%, highest posterior density region at 95%; P, P(D > 0) when D > 0 and P(D < 0) when D < 0; R, assumed relevant difference between genotypes; Ps, probability of similarity (probability of the absolute value of D being lower than R); Pr, probability of relevance [P(D > R) when D > 0 and P(D < R) when D < 0].
