  • a Chromosome/mapping distance in centimorgans from the left end of the chromosome.

  • b Positions at which the LOD score reaches the peak value.

  • c Confidence interval calculated as the interval on either side of the peak value in which the LOD score dropped by 1.0.

  • d Proportion of the phenotypic variance explained by genetic segregation at the QTL.
