Detection of quantitative trait
loci affecting milk production, health, and reproductive traits in Holstein cattle.
locus (QTL): A DNA region that is associated with a quantitative trait
and which may contain one or more of the genes contributing to variation in that trait.
Williams says, "Aflatoxin accumulation is highly sensitive to environmental variations, and resistance is a highly quantitative trait
, meaning that it's controlled by multiple genes.
