For each QTL peak identified, columns from left to right indicate: its chromosome; the peak location on that chromosome in centimorgans, with respect to the standard C. elegans genetic map (upper axes in Figure 1), indicating 95% confidence intervals for samples C1 and C2 combined or approximate locations for C3; peak significance values (LODCTIM and ZNpIM scores for C1, C2, or both combined); and the standardized QTL effect (calculated as the selection coefficient divided by the selection intensity; see Falconer and Mackay 1996).
