  1. Information of the average QTL position (QTL) and 1-LOD drop-off confidence interval (CI) in cM; flanking markers of the peak; LOD score with respective significance level [*suggestive QTL (1.7 ≤ LOD < 2.0), **significant QTL (2.0 ≤ LOD < 3.0), ***highly significant QTL (LOD ≥ 3.0)]; estimated QTL effect (Est) and standardised QTL effect (SD) [estimated effect difference (Awassi-Merino) relative to the estimated phenotypic standard deviation] are presented.
