Table 3 SNP14 additive, dominance effects and dominance to additive ratio for milk production traits.

From: Casein SNP in Norwegian goats: additive and dominance effects on milk composition and quality

Traits Effects Degree of dominance [k = d/a] P-valuesA
  Additive [a] Dominance [d]   
Milk yield (kg) 0.0932 0.2016 2.16 0.0011
Lactose (%) -0.0327 -0.0538 1.65 0.064
Fat (%) -0.2890 -0.1698 0.59 -
Protein (%) -0.1136 -0.0736 0.65 -
  1. A P-values are for testing if the difference between d and a is significantly greater than zero.
