  • Marker loci showing significant associations (P < 0.01) on the basis of a marker regression analysis are listed. Position, physical position on rice chromosome (MSU 6.0); LRS, likelihood ratio statistic; VAR, percentage of total variance attributable to the marker locus; Add, additive effect of the indica (93-11) allele compared to the japonica (Nipponbare) allele.
