  1. 1 The most probable location for QTL in Kosambi cM. 2 Chromosome-wide significance levels (* = P < 0.05; *** = P < 0.001). 3 Location of 95% CI in cM according to drop off method. Total length (in cM) of CI is indicated in brackets. 4 Location of 95% CI in Mb. Total distance (in Mb) for the CI extrapolated to the closest markers is indicated in brackets. 5 Gene numbers present in the 95% CI according to NCBI database source. 6 SD: within-family residual standard deviation.
