Empirical distribution of the estimated QTL location according to the marker density under H1. Results are based on 5000 simulations per case of an outbred population of 300 individuals. The number of markers varied from 2 to 11 along a linkage group of 0.6 M. Δ indicates the true QTL location. The line represents the density obtained with a Kernel method.
