Population types for QTL mapping (3)
F2:3 (and related) populations:
Advantage: Fast and easy to construct
Disadvantage: F3 families are still very heterozygous, so the precision of the estimates can be low (because of the high standard error); can’t be replicated
Example: Jampatong C, McMullen MD, Barry BD, Darrah LL, Byrne PF, Kross H (2002) Quantitative trait loci for first- and second-generation European corn borer resistance derived from the maize inbred Mo47. Crop Science 42: 584-593.
