  1. LOD scores, percentage variance explained (PVE), and mean trait values for each genotype class at the marker position are shown. For DS1, an additive model was identified that combines two QTLs located at 9.3 and 13.2cM. The first two rows indicate the LOD and PVE associated with dropping one QTL from the model. The third row shows the LOD and PVE for the full model combining the two QTLs. Genotype classes are labeled according to grandparent of origin. Phenotype values are residuals to standard length in millimeters
