Distribution of the bias depending on the population size and the QTL effect. a. Proportion of estimated QTL locations on marker positions. b. RMSE of QTL location. Results are based on 5000 simulations per case. There were three markers at 0 M, 0.2 M and 0.4 M. The true QTL location was set at 0.1 M. 5*1*20 indicates that there were 5 sires, 1 dam per sire and 20 progeny per dam in the design.
