  • In the case that the LOD interval contains > 1 subspecific origin, these are listed in decreasing order of contribution with the specific origin at the QTL peak underlined. Chr, chromosome; mus, M. musculus musculus; dom, M. musculus domesticus; VCL, curvilinear velocity; ALH, amplitude of lateral head displacement; cast, M. musculus castaneus.
