  • For each QTL, the linkage group (LG), genetic map position (cM), nearest marker next to the highest LOD score (likelihood of odds), and percentage variance explained (PVE) are provided. The phenotypic values of each trait (mean ± SE) for each genotype (PM = Paxton/Matadero; MM = Matadero/Matadero) at the nearest genetic marker.
