  • Embedded Image is the genotypic mean of the backcross progenies from F parents with marker genotype g backcrossed to parental line j (j = 2, 1). Only Embedded Image means are presented, since the coefficients for Embedded Image are the same (for a given g) for Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image. Contrasts Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image have the same coefficients as Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image for Embedded Image, respectively; for Embedded Image, the coefficients are the same but with opposite signs.
