  1. QTL: quantitative trait locus;
  2. h21: heritability of the continuous trait T1; h22 (h23, h24, h25): heritability of binary trait T2 (T3, T4, T5);
  3. QTL scenarios: different scenarios with respect to recombination rate between markers and QTL (r) and polymorphism information content (PIC) of markers with r = 0.00 and PIC = 0.9 in the first line, r = 0.01 and PIC = 0.9 in the second line, and r = 0.00 and PIC = 0.7 in the third line.
