  • a Abbreviations are also used to identify position in Figure 1.

  • b Some of the candidate genes were used as markers and are indicated as such. The flanking markers for the others are listed.

  • c The presence of each candidate gene within a QTL is noted for this study and also for a QTL analysis of D. melanogaster mean IPI (Gleason et al. 2002).
