Version 3A of PLABSTAT software of plant breeding experiments (Utz, 2011) was used to determine phenotypic and genotypic correlations.
Using the coefficient of genotypic variation (CVg), it is possible to compare the genetic variability of the different characteristics analyzed (COSTA et al., 2006; RIBEIRO et al., 2009).
Thus, this study aimed to estimate the phenotypic and genotypic correlations between important agronomic soybean traits, in addition to performing the path analysis in order to identify variables for indirect selection aiming at an increasing grain yield.
Presently, there is a growing understanding of the role that genotypic interactions play in the phenotype of nucleopolyhedroviruses.
Gene-disease association analysis: Comparisons of the allelic and the genotypic frequencies between different sample populations were done to determine if there was an association between controls (P populations and ABC populations) and the patient populations (ADE, AD and HFR samples).
Comparative variability of traits is evaluated by estimating the genotypic coefficient of variation (GVC) and the phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) (Ahmad et al.) [5].
Heterozygosity, allelic and genotypic frequencies of identified variants were also determined.
In this study, we aimed to investigate the clinical efficacy and safety of TDF monotherapy in Chinese CHB patients with genotypic resistance.
Although, phenotypic identification of bacterial cultures using biochemical tests is one of the standard methods for identification of any bacteria, variability in biochemical tests at times lead to misidentification of these organisma, therefore genotypic tests such as PCR was attempted for the confirmation.
Therefore, the objective of present study was to narrate the nature and extent of genetic variability and phenotypic and genotypic variability of sugarcane varieties in some exotic traits in Bangladesh.
(1) In addition, the use of different algorithms for interpretation of mutational profiles obtained by genotypic tests might provide divergent results regarding sensitivity of HIV to ARV drugs to be used in salvage therapy regimens.
