Empirical distribution of the estimated QTL location according to the marker density under H0. Results are based on 5000 simulations per case of in an outbred population of 300 individuals. The number of markers varied from 2 to 11 across along a linkage group of 0.6 M. The line represents the density obtained with a Kernel method.
