Author Contributions

C. Dean, P. Marjoram, and M. Nordborg designed and directed the overall project. M. J. Aranzana, C. Tang, C. Toomajian, and H. Zheng generated the candidate locus genotypes. M. J. Aranzana, C. Lister, C. Shindo, C. Tang, and H. Zheng generated the phenotypes. C. Lister and C. Shindo carried out the linkage mapping studies. K. Zhao, M. J. Aranzana, S. Kim, C. Toomajian, P. Marjoram, and M. Nordborg analyzed the data. K. Zhao and M. Nordborg wrote the paper.
