Table 1 Comparison of vQTL methods

From: Recent developments in statistical methods for detecting genetic loci affecting phenotypic variability

Estimation method Simulated distribution
  Gaussian Poisson
Levene’s test 0.053 0.497
SVLM 0.063 0.389
DGLM-Gaussian 0.064 0.632
DGLM-Poisson n.a. 0.055
  1. n.a. = not applicable.
  2. False positive rates for simulations with no interaction effects (10,000 individuals and 1,000 replicates).
