Figure S6. Examples of gene regions associated with significant SNP effects for body conformation traits; a boxed gene contained at least one top-100 effect, and numbers above red arrows (significant SNP effects) indicate rank of SNP effect. A) The 1 Mb region of Bos taurus (BTA) chromosome X with the most significant SNP effect (LOC515732 is PHKA2) for predicted transmitting ability (PTA) for stature. B) The 10.2 Mb region of BTA 11 with eight of the top 20 SNP effects for stature. C) The 1 Mb region of BTA16 with the most significant SNP effect (REN) for PTA for strength. D) The 1.75 Mb region of BTA19 with five genes with highly significant SNP effects for rump width and udder cleft. E) A BTA21 gene cluster with three genes associated with teat length.
