Table 4 Empirical confidence intervals in cM based on the 90, 95 and 99 percentile values from the dQTL distribution per QTL size (small 2% and big 6%), per QTL genetic model (cross-specific, parental, ancestral, bi-allelic, and MQE), and per population size (N = 800 and N = 1600)

From: The influence of QTL allelic diversity on QTL detection in multi-parent populations: a simulation study in sugar beet
