Features of the estimated marginal posterior distributions of the differences between different genotypes of the 2464G>A SNP for the promoter region of the progesterone receptor gene for fertilization rate (% FR), early embryo survival (EES), percentage of early morulae (% EM), percentage of compacted morulae (% CM), and percentage of blastocysts (% B) at 48 and 72 hr of gestation in the F2 population

  • 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].
