Best linear unbiased predictor weighted mean disease (BLUP-WMD) values for B73, Mo17, and Stuber near-isogenic line (NIL) F2:3 population parents 844-1 and 844-6. Error bars reflect the standard error of the difference of means.

Log of odds (LOD) profiles of the four populations studied over the major southern leaf blight (SLB) resistance quantitative trait loci (QTL) in bin 3.04. The endpoints of the 2-LOD support interval for the joint analysis are indicated by arrows. IBM, intermated B73 × Mo17; NIL, near-isogenic line; RIL, recombinant inbred line.

Chromosome 3 genotypes of the six B73 near-isogenic line (NIL) F2:3 subpopulations derived from the six BC5F2 lines listed. Map positions are in IBM2008 units (Schaeffer et al., 2008). Arrow indicates position of the bin 3.04 southern leaf blight (SLB) resistance quantitative trait loci (QTL).

Boxplot of best linear unbiased predictor weighted mean disease (BLUP-WMD) scores for B73 near-isogenic line (NIL) F2:3 lines according to genotype at the PHM12576 locus. Boxes incorporate the 25th to 75th percentile of data, while dotted lines represent means and connected lines represent medians. Outliers are represented as circles.
