Table 5 The QTL effect on growth traits and associated absolute T values in segregating individual parents for the significant QTL at chr. 20

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

Sire-based analysis Traits QTL effect estimate (SE)a (g) Absolute T value
J9L2M0088 Harvest Weight −580 (170) 3.43
  Fillet Weight −430 (110) 4.01
  Gutted Weight −650 (150) 4.41
  Deheaded Weight −580 (130) 4.41
  Head Weight −80 (20) 3.61
  Total Waste Weight −140 (50) 2.98
J9L2M0091 Harvest Weight −360 (160) 2.19
J9L3M3080 Total Waste Weight 170 (70) 2.29
Dam-based analysis    
J9L2F0144 Gutted Weight 570 (170) 3.36
  Deheaded Weight 480 (150) 3.28
  Total Waste Weight 140 (50) 2.53
J9L2F1295 Gutted Weight 590 (250) 2.35
  Deheaded Weight 480 (200) 2.35
  Body Waste Weight 200 (60) 3.56
  Total Waste Weight 270 (80) 3.52
J9L2F0695 Deheaded Weight −940 (400) 2.32
  1. aThe sign + or – is arbitrary when compared across families but indicates the direction of the allelic effect within families (e.g. an allele decreasing harvest weight in sire J9L2M0088 also decreased fillet, gutted, deheaded, head and total waste weight)
