Table 1 Phenotypic data and variance components for genotype (\( {\sigma}_G^2 \)), genotype-by-environment interaction (\( {\sigma}_{G\times E}^2 \)), error (\( {\sigma}_e^2 \)), and entry-mean heritabilities for aggressiveness in wheat (AGG-WH) and rye (AGG-RYE) and deoxynivalenol content in wheat (DON-WH). Estimates were calculated with arcsine square root transformed data

From: Genome-wide association study for deoxynivalenol production and aggressiveness in wheat and rye head blight by resequencing 92 isolates of Fusarium culmorum
