Therefore, the traits significantly affected by each QTL were also tested for significant association with each local region, the molar and incisor alveolar regions and the coronoid, condyloid, angular, and masseteric regions of the ascending ramus [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED] using the Phi coefficient and a one-way Fisher's exact test.
For example, at QTMAN8-1 both coronoid height (1) and superior condyloid length (2) have negative additive and dominance values, in contrast to most other measurements.
