Epistasis. One of the assumptions in most analyses for diallel crossesand indeed, in most procedures for quantitative genetics-is no nonallelic gene interaction or no epistasis. Gilbert (1958) and Baker (1978) have criticized the analysis for this requirement. Hayman (1954b) has presented two tests to detect the presence of epistasis. The first test concerns the values of W r and Vr across parental arrays. The values (Wr + Vr) will be constant across arrays only if the gene action determining the trait is additive.
