QTL effects and LOD scores of the Asian seabass genome estimated by QTL mapping. QTL that surpassed the suggestive LOD threshold (LG-wide threshold: p < 0.05) were presented. The lower case alphabet letter sets indicate the identified QTL position in each linkage group for each trait, described as in Table 1. The ‘x’ axis shows the linkage groups with suggestive QTL. The length of each linkage group is roughly proportional to the genetic length (cM) of the respective linkage group. LOD threshold for each trait at genome-wide LOD significance (p = 0.05) is shown; ‘**’, highly significant QTL at genome-wide LOD significance (p < 0.01).
