  1. The table describes second level GO terms found to be significantly over represented via hypergeometric analysis. The 'QTL categories' group provides the category from which the subsequent terms were found to be in abundance. Population frequency describes the frequency of the occurrence of the term genome wide. QTL/Population describes the ratio of the frequency of a GO code within a QTL region compared to the frequency of that GO code genome wide.
