  • a Peak LR.

  • b Proportion of the phenotypic variance accounted for by each QTL (= aA).

  • c Size of the QTL region given by the 95% CL (= 2-LOD support interval), in kilobase (kb) pairs (Sorsa 1988).

  • d Size of the QTL region given by the 95% CL, in centimorgans; (Lindsley and Zimm 1992).

  • e Average number of genes in the QTL region defined by the 95% CL, based on a total eukaryotic genome size of 120 Mbp and 13,600 genes and predicted genes; 1 gene on average = 8.8 kb (Adams et al. 2000).

  • CL, confidence limits.
