  • a O. longistaminata tiller number.

  • b Chromosomal positions in kilobase of left bounds of the 95% confidence intervals. All chromosomal positions are based on the physical position of the closest marker in the NB reference genome.

  • c Chromosomal positions in kilobases, where the maximum LOD scores were detected for each QTL.

  • d Chromosomal positions in kilobases, of right bounds of the 95% confidence intervals.

  • e Positive values indicate increases of the number of tillers in OL homozygotes, while negative values indicate decreases in OL homozygotes compared to NB.

  • f Positive values indicate increased tiller number in heterozygotes compared with the averages of NB and OL homozygotes, while negative values indicates decreases in heterozygotes compared with the averages of NB and OL homozygotes.
