David M. Francis, The Ohio State University

This page provides the output for the single molecular marker analysis using ANOVA example. Two molecular markers are evaluated to determine whether the genotype of each molecular marker results in differences in disease severity in a BC1 population.

This module provides an example of using analysis of variance (ANOVA) to assess differences in tomato bacterial spot resistance due to molecular marker genotype (treatment effect) in a BC1 population.
