The missing heritability revealed in Arabidopsis thaliana
(Submitted on 30 Jul 2013)
Although high-throughput genomic data are widely available, a large proportion of the narrow sense heritability of many complex traits have not been successfully uncovered. In this study, focusing on phenotype prediction, I show that by properly selecting a small number of loci, a significant amount of missing heritability can be revealed. The results provide new insights into the missing heritability problem and the underlying genetic architecture of complex traits.
