Figure 1.

Map positions of simulated and reported QTLs and their percentage explained phenotypic variances. Black lines separate the five chromosomes. Grey lines and x-axis labels indicate the map positions of six simulated QTLs per parameter of the growth curve. QTL may pertain to the three curve parameters, i.e., Asymptote (Φ1) - inflection point (Φ2) - scaling factor (Φ3) or the trait at five time points. Only QTLs reported to have additive effects are shown.
