Table 3 Consistency between QTL detected with 'raw' and 'curated' genotypic data.

From: Precision-mapping and statistical validation of quantitative trait loci by machine learning

  1. a SML, Statistical Machine Learning; MR, single Marker Regression; CIM, Composite Interval Mapping with 20 background markers at > 10 cM distance from the tested interval.
  2. b QTL profiles are whole-genome plots of the fraction of variance explained vs. genome position similar to those displayed in Figures 6-8. The values reported are means ± SD across the nine traits investigated in this study.
  3. cThe percentage overlap was computed by division by the average number of QTL detected with the two datasets.
