  • The LG as defined in Gagnaire et al. (2013a) and position of the body shape−associated QTL are indicated. In addition, FST values between dwarf and normal Whitefish in the lake in which potential selection was detected are indicated. The mean FST value for divergence between dwarf and normal Whitefish for 3438 SNPs is indicated in parentheses under the lake names. In bold, a marker (69063) that shows potential genetic parallelism between Indian and Webster species pairs and two others (107544 and 37687) physically ’close’ (1.2 cM) on the genetic map that could represent another case of genetic parallelism between Cliff and Indian species pairs. SNP, single-nucleotide polymorphism; QTL, quantitative trait loci; LG, linkage group.
