*Average of 10 replicates. t1000, t500, t100 and t20 = proportion of the variance accounted for the markers (varM) explained by those with the largest 1000, 500, 100 and 20 absolute effects, respectively. <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2156/13/100/mathml/M14','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2156/13/100/mathml/M14">View MathML</a>, in which <a onClick="popup('http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2156/13/100/mathml/M15','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2156/13/100/mathml/M15">View MathML</a> and pi are the estimated effect and the allele frequency for the ith marker, respectively. |g| > 0 = number of markers with non-null estimated effect. kurt = excess kurtosis of the distribution of estimated marker effects. Trait = weight at 6 weeks (W6W), weight growth slope (WGS), body length (BL), percentage of CD8+ cells (%CD8+), ratio between CD4+ and CD8+ cells (CD4+/CD8+).
