  • The number of QTL expected is calculated from the proportion of genomic euchromatin on each of the major D. melanogaster chromosomes. There was no evidence for preferential location of CHC QTL on any chromosome in females (χ2 = 1.456, d.f. = 2, P = 0.483) or males (χ2 = 2.340, d.f.=2, P = 0.310).
