Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for body weight and tail length are mapped in an F2 population of 927 C57BL/6J × DBA/2J mice. We test the concordance between the locations of the mapped QTLs with those detected by changes of marker frequency under artificial selection in a previous experiment with the same base population. The directions of effects of the QTLs are generally in agreement, and in many cases significant QTLs are found in similar map positions, but there are also discrepancies… CONTINUE READING
