Mating type dependent QTL.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Comparison of allele frequencies within MATa and MATα populations revealed loci that affect growth in a mating type dependent manner. The QTL on chromosome 8 encompasses GPA1, a negative regulator of the mating pathway that affects fitness in different strain backgrounds . Chromosome 3 was omitted as it contains the mating type locus itself (see S8 Table for all mating type dependent QTL identified).
