  1. Correlations were constructed from the solutions of linear regressions; strong correlations are indicated in bold characters and moderate correlations in italic characters; standard errors for each analysis are ±0.069 for the Rnase 5 pathway and ±0.004 for the whole genome. Fertility is measured as calving interval.
