Table 1 Precision of QTL position estimates in 1000 replicate simulations

From: The complete linkage disequilibrium test: a test that points to causative mutations underlying quantitative traits

Original size of QTL
Number of brackets or marker positions between estimated and correct position (P = 0.001)
  0 1 2 3 4 5 > 5 No significant QTL found
QTL between markers*   447 132 59 26 22 28 286
QTL included as marker 972 14 4 3   1   6
Reduced size of QTL
Number of brackets or marker positions between estimated and correct position (P = 0.001)
  0 1 2 3 4 5 > 5 No significant QTL found
QTL between markers*   344 84 32 11 13 21 495
QTL included as marker 855 27 9 6   1 1 101
  1. *since the QTL is not included there is no correct position; the two marker positions surrounding the QTL are considered to be one position away from the correct position
