True QTL locations, their estimated locations and one-lod-support intervals from the IM and MQM analyses, and Bayesian point estimates (modes of the QTL intensity) together with suggested support intervals Embedded Image when parental genotypes and haplotypes are available, and Embedded Image when no parental haplotypes are available (from Table 5). LOD score was evaluated every 0.5 cM in the IM and MQM estimation. The posterior modes (intervals) were obtained with binlength 0.1 cM (1.0 cM), using all 5,000,000 sampled values in Embedded Image and 1,000,000 values in Embedded Image. Note that in the IM and MQM analyses, there is no counterpart to estimates in column Embedded Image.
