Table 3 Results of the QTL linkage mapping

From: Composition of the ileum microbiota is a mediator between the host genome and phosphorus utilization and other efficiency traits in Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica)

Trait CJA Pos (cM) LOD Support interval borders (cM) Number of significant SNPs
Low High
Aerococcus 3 12 4.00** 0 19 16
Bacillus 2 160 4.14** 147 164 24
Cutibacterium 2 171 3.83* 147 178 34
Escherichia/Shigella 24 0 4.31** 0 8 2
Ruminococcus 2 3 2 3.74* 0 10 10
Streptococcus 5 50 3.78* 44 57 17
  1. Pos: positions in cM of 5% (**) and 10% (*) genome-wide significant QTL on Coturnix japonica chromosomes (CJA), with LOD score test statistics (LOD) and the corresponding QTL support intervals (SI), in cM. SI_low and SI_high represent the beginning and the end of the SI, respectively, and significant SNPs (p ≤ 0.05) are obtained from the SNP-trait association analysis. The corresponding genetic linkage map can be found in Vollmar et al. [18]
