Number of QTL 10 100 1000
Number of large QTL 1 5 50
Number of medium QTL 2 20 200
Number of small QTL 7 75 750

Variance of large QTL 2.86 11.45 20.05 0.35 1.40 2.45 0.04 0.14 0.25
Variance of medium QTL 0.95 3.82 6.68 0.12 0.47 0.82 0.01 0.05 0.08

  1. Number of large, medium, and small QTL, with the variance explained by each QTL; the phenotypic variance was 100 and, together, the simulated QTL explained 70% of the genetic variance.
