The (posterior) expected number of QTL in Formula, calculated as the integral of the QTL intensity over Formula, is also determined. “Complete parental info.” refers to the analysis where all parental genotypes and linkage phases were known and “partial parental info.” refers to the case where only parental genotypes were available.
