Data from: Phenotypic landscapes: phenological patterns in wild and cultivated barley

Phenotypic variation in natural populations is the outcome of the joint effects of environmentally induced adaptations and neutral processes on the genetic architecture of quantitative traits. In this study we examined the role of adaptation in shaping wild barley phenotypic variation along different environmental gradients. Detailed phenotyping of 164 wild barley (Hordeum spontaneum) accessions from Israel (of the Barley1K collection), and 18 cultivated barley (H. vulgare) varieties, was conducted in common garden field trials.

Data from: Optimum design of family structure and allocation of resources in association mapping with lines from multiple crosses

Family mapping is based on multiple segregating families and is becoming increasingly popular due to advantages over population mapping. Though much progress has been made recently, the optimum design and allocation of resources for family mapping remains unclear. Here, we addressed these issues using a simulation study, resample model averaging and cross-validation approaches. Our results show that in family mapping, the predictive power and the accuracy of QTL detection depend greatly on the population size...
