Empirical distribution of the estimated QTL locations before and after adjustment. Results are based on 5000 simulations per case in a backcross population of 100 progeny. There were six markers equally distributed on a linkage group of 1 M. The true QTL location indicated as Δ was set at 0.1 M or 0.2 M.
