  1. Pairwise comparison of the eight MCMC chains A-H by Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient ρ (upper right triangle) and mean ratio of the 2 × log-transformed Bayes factors in chain I vs. chain II (lower left triangle) for the 20 markers with the strongest signals of association across chains in the analysis of all chromosomes by MU.
