  • The squared roots of the mean square errors of the MLEs are given in parentheses. The locations of the two QTL are described by the map distances (in centimorgans) from the first marker of the linkage group (80 cM long). The hypothesized σ2ε value is 4.4550 for R2 = 0.1 and 0.7425 for R2 = 0.4.
