A single locus analysis including pairwise SNP x SNP interaction was conducted using the SNPassoc (version 1.9.2) under the assumption of the four genetic models (codominant, dominant, recessive and overdominant).
PIC value varies between 0.5-1.0 for codominant markers while it takes maximum 0.5 for dominant markers like ISSR (Boopathi, 2013).
The codominant species index was used to distinguish between abundant and rare species in the taxocenosis (Kikvidze & Osawa, 2002).
In this study, 954 individuals were classified according to the Sociological Position Method: 66 trees in the inferior stratum (dominated), 232 in the middle stratum (codominant), and 656 in the superior stratum (dominant), as shown in Table 2.
Microsatellite tracking provides the ability to study the population genetic structure (An et al., 2012), due to their relatively high abundance in the genome, a high mutation rate, polymorphism, codominant Mendelian inheritance and good reproducibility (Matthewa et al., 2009).
The OR was calculated by the codominant, homozygous, heterogeneous, dominant, and recessive models based on the genotype frequencies in cases and controls.
Genotypic association analysis in a case-control pattern assuming codominant, dominant, recessive, and overdominant genetic models was performed using SNPstats.
SNPStats program (http://bioinfo.iconcologia.net/SNPstats_web) for the analysis of the genotype distribution between the groups by logistic regression in the codominant, dominant, and recessive models.
To test the association between Pv and CTLA-4 polymorphisms, logistic regression analysis was performed according to five inheritance models (codominant 1, codominant 2, dominant, recessive, and log-additive).
