1QTL position is defined relative to the first marker (SNP) present in the genetic map for each chromosome; first marker positioned at 1 cM.

2For dominant QTL, the LRT is the test of model 3) against model 2). The variance explained by the QTL is given as additive /dominance

3 For imprinted QTL, the LRT is the test of model 4) against model 2). The variance explained by the QTL is given as maternal /paternal

*/** Significance threshold P < 0.05/0.01 assuming the null test statistic follows a χ21 distribution
