Significant QTL for body mass ratio between week 10 and week 5 in an F2 mouse population detected from the genome-wide interval mapping scan by the L2E and ML methods at the 0.05 significance level

aMap position = population-estimated position in cM from the leftmost proximal marker.

bAdditive and dominance effects of the QTL

c%Var = percentage variance explained by the QTL.
