Epigenetic Effect in Plants
Location: Outside U.S.

Is there any method to calculate epigenetic effect in a plant population?
Thanks for the question. I would quantify the extent of an epigenetic effect by percent of progeny that are not explained by simple Mendelian genetics. Basically, you want to know the fraction of progeny phenotypes that cannot be explained by Mendelian genetics.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
