  • Values provided are estimates from the MCMCglmm model followed by the SEM, and 95% credible intervals (CI). Mean lifespan is given in days, and mean aging is given for values of β (× 100), with estimates of line (VL), vial (VV) (could only be estimated for lifespan), residual (VR), and phenotypic (VP) variance. Additive genetic variance (VA) and the coefficient of additive genetic (CVA) were derived from line variance and mean estimates.
