Characterization of the genetic architecture of different traits by genome partitioning of the genetic variance. (A) Cummulative genetic variance explained by individual chromosomes. (B) Genetic variance explained by each chromosome (number in points). The chromosomes containing either major mQTL for metabolites or putative minor QTL for agronomic traits lie above the red line. (C) Genetic variance explained by chromosomes plotted against the genetic variance explained by the GWA signals on these chromosomes.
