  • The map position in both centimorgans (cM) and megabases (Mb) along with the confidence interval (C.I.) (in Mb) and the effects on each of the 10 weekly weight measurements are given for each locus. The rows labeled “Early,” “Mid,” and “Late” give the significance values from the multivariate tests. Significance tests are in LPR units (where LPR = −log10[p]). Entries in boldface type are significant using the chromosome-level significance threshold. Additive maternal effects that appear to be attributable to an imprinting effect are marked with a superscript “i”. The estimates of all effects and the significance values for all tests are provided in Table S1. The proportions of phenotypic variance accounted for by the set of loci (R2) on each of the weekly weight traits are also included.

  • a Loci also show significant maternal effects in the analyses of Wolf et al. (2011).

  • b Does not include variation from apparent additive maternal effects that were attributed to imprinting effects (i.e., those with a superscript “i”).

  • c Entries are significant using the genome-wide threshold.
