  • I, II, and III stand for three different simulation cases, in which (I) the epistatic model is applied when epistasis exists, (II) the epistatic model is applied when epistasis does not exist, and (III) the reduced model without epistatic effects is applied when epistasis exists, respectively, under the same heritability of 70% and the same population structure of 600:1 (600 IF2 lines and 1 offspring each IF2 line). QTL, Chr., Pos., Est., SD, and Power have same definitions as those in Table 1.
