Table 4 Results of dam-based QTL mapping analysis and proportion of phenotypic variance explained for significant trait/chromosome combinations

From: The genetic architecture of growth and fillet traits in farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)

Chr Trait Dam F-ratio PVE Average QTL position (cM) 95 % C.I. for QTL Position (cM)
20 Gutted Weight 2.48* 0.06 20.8 0.0 - 43.0
Deheaded Weight 2.71* 0.07 19.4
Total Waste Weight 2.35* 0.06 14.0
Body Waste Weight 2.18* 0.06 12.4 0.0 - 40.0
13 Gut Weight 2.49* 0.07 42.0 0.0 - 64.0
18 Gutted Weight 2.62* 0.07 20.2 0.0 - 39.0
  1. *: chromosome-wide significance at p < 0.05; : QTLs found in the analysis fitting harvest weight as covariate
  2. PVE: proportion of phenotypic variance for full-sib analysis
