  • QTL regions are estimated from 2 LOD support intervals (P ≤ 0.05) and the cytological locations were extrapolated from recombination rate between markers in comparison to the D. yakuba cytological map. The peak is the cytological location with the highest likelihood ratio (LR). Effects were estimated from the least-squares means of the two genotype classes as [homozygous − heterozygous] and are also given scaled by the phenotypic standard deviation (σp). R2 is the proportion of the variance accounted for the QTL and is estimated by Embedded Image, where s2 is the variance of the trait, Embedded Image is the sample variance of the residuals, and Embedded Image is the variance of the residuals (Basten et al. 1999).
