  • aamm, aaee, aame, and aaem are the maternal additive–additive epistatic effect, the endosperm additive–additive epistatic effect, the maternal–endosperm additive–additive epistatic effect, and the endosperm– maternal additive–additive epistatic effect, respectively. Epi. (epistasis), the name of the detected paired QTL (QTL1 and QTL2) with epistasis; Pos. of QTL1 (or -2), the distance (centimorgans) between the first marker and QTL1 (or -2) of the paired QTL with epistasis; Chr., Par., Est., and SD have same definitions as those in Table 1.
