|Inheritance of DNA
can be traced within and across families for hundreds of genes influencing
quantitative traits by genotyping many markers across the genome. Markers may or may not contain loci that
affect a trait. Relationship matrix of markers….
|Vq is the
co-variance matrix of QTL’s
|U = breeding value or sum of genetic effects.
|T = QTL relationship
|Use marker, as not
many QTL have been indentified.
