Table 4 Influential genomic regions for SGNCon. Ten regions with the largest total effects, and that contain more than 30 markers, are listed in descending order of absolute total effect. The regional information comprises the linkage group (LG), the total effect, the contributing parent and the number of markers. Note that the impact of the region on the phenotype is obtained by multiplying the total effect by the marker scores (1 for Cranbrook and -1 for Halberd). The name and distance correspond to the marker with the maximum absolute effect within the region. The final two columns are the p-value and LOD score for the markers that remained after the backward elimination step (that commenced with all ten markers listed in the Table)
