|Barley, kap/Lks2 phenotype
|Epistatic Interaction Between Hooded (Kap) and Short-Awned (lks2). The epistatic interaction between the hooded (Kap) and short-awned (lks2) loci precludes mapping of the Kap locus, based on phenotypic data, when alleles at both loci are segregating. In individuals that are homozygous for the recessive allele of lks2, the hooded phenotype is masked, resulting in a short-awned, non-hooded inflorescence rather than the hooded phenotype.
