  1. The column marked ‘None’ represents the selection of significant SNPs at an arbitrary threshold value (−Log10 P ≥ 3.5). The column marked MBH represents the number of markers identified using the marker-based-heritability-regression method. Columns marked Bon and FDR refer to Bonferroni corrections and positive False Discovery Rate, respectively, for the number of significant markers that were selected based on a cutoff of 0.05. Data sets for these analysis were previously published reports for days to pollinations (DP) and ear diameter (ED) in maize, carbon isotope ratio (C13) and canopy wilting (CW) in soybean, and seeds per panicle (SD) and plant height (PH) in rice
