Empirical distribution of the estimated QTL location according to the QTL effect under H1. Results are based on 5000 simulations per case in an outbred population of 100 progeny. There were three markers at 0 M, 0.2 M and 0.4 M. The QTL effect varied from 0.5 σ to 4σ. Δ indicates the true QTL location. The line represents the density obtained with a Kernel method.
