MOESM4 of Genomic dissection of maternal, additive and non-additive genetic effects for growth and carcass traits in Nile tilapia

Additional file 4. Assumptions on the nature of non-additive genetic variance and the impact on estimates of additive genetic variance. The file presents the numerical proof that the estimate of additive genetic variance is reduced when the non-additive variation is assumed to be additive-by-additive epistasis rather than dominance, and this reduction is of the order of 3/8 epistatic variance.
