Figure 1.

Quantile–quantile (QQ) plots for the genomewide association study of growth traits in Charolais beef cattle. The straight line in the QQ plots indicates the distribution of SNP markers under the null hypothesis, and the skew at the edge indicates that these markers are more strongly associated with the traits than would be expected by chance. BWT = BW at birth; WWT = BW at weaning; AGW = preweaning ADG; YWT = yearling BW; PWG = postweaning ADG.

Manhattan plots of the P-values for the genomewide association study of growth traits in Charolais beef cattle. The horizontal line indicates the significance threshold for significant associations (P < 5 × 10−5). BWT = BW at birth; WWT = BW at weaning; YWT = yearling BW; AGW = preweaning ADG; PWG = postweaning ADG.
