Figure 4.

Pairwise linkage disequilibrium plots indicating r2 values for 7 SNP in the regulatory region of the examined populations. a. Crossbred samples (n = 141), b. Aberdeen Angus, c. Charolais, d. Limousin (n = 15 for each breed). Dark grey and black squares indicate statistically significant (LOD > 2) allelic association between a pair of SNPs; darker greys indicate higher values of r2, up to a maximum of 1 (black). White and light grey squares indicate no statistically significant evidence of LD.
