  • Means ± standard errors or counts are given with the ranges presented parenthetically. In addition to numbers of predicted QTL, we evaluated how often the predicted QTL of largest effect size on both major autosomes was associated with more of the phenotypic variance than the QTL of largest size on the X chromosome. We also note how often the predicted QTL of largest effect was within 5 cM of the centromere of one of the two major autosomes.
