Table 3 Average TPR, FDR and dQTL results. The TPR and FDR are measured with detection window sizes around the simulated QTL of ±5, 10 and 20 cM, or the whole chromosome (TPR chr). FDR chr is the average FDR on the chromosome with no simulated QTL. The results are presented per population size (N = 800 and N = 1600) and QTL genetic model (cross-specific, parental, ancestral, bi-allelic, and MQE)
