  1. GGA = Gallus gallus chromosome; VA: additive genetic variance by genomic region; VA, %: proportion of additive genetic variance explained by the genomic region; the parentheses denote the 95% high posterior density interval; non-significant SNPs were extracted from the 50 k Affymetrix Axiom chip; the two nearby located significant regions on GGA13 (13a and 13b) and GGA14 (14a and 14b) were merged on each chromosome
