Figure 1

Interval mapping of additive and dominant QTL effects on chicken chromosomes 1, 4 and 5 for weight (top) and conformation-score (bottom). The Y-axis shows the scaled rank of the test statistic obtained when compared to 1000 permutations of genotype within dam for 18 positions on chromosome 4 for weight and conformation-score. Test add is rank of test statistic obtained for model testing for additive QTL, addom is test statistic obtained from testing for both additive and dominant QTL effects and dom is test between two models for dominance only. Dam effect was fitted. Solid line at top is 5% empirical linkage group-wise significance
