  • Embedded Image is the genotypic mean of the backcross progenies from F2 parents with marker genotype g backcrossed to parental line j (j = 2, 1). Only coefficients of Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image are given for Embedded Image means. The coefficients of Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image for Embedded Image are the same as those for Embedded Image. Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image have the same coefficients as Embedded Image, Embedded Image, and Embedded Image for Embedded Image; but for Embedded Image, the coefficients have opposite signs.
