Effect of additional markers and animals on information content. Information content was determined for both the first QTL scan (dotted lines) and the second scan (solid lines) which include additional animals and markers. Blue lines indicate additive effects and red lines indicate dominance effects. Marker positions are shown as triangles on the X-axis (gray, markers used for both QTL scans and genotyped only in 510 animals; green, markers used for both QTL scans and genotyped in all animals; red, markers used for second scan only and genotyped in all animals).
