Table 3 Possible candidate genes for QTLs affecting microbiome and body weight/composition traits in the G 10 mice

From: Host genetics and diet, but not immunoglobulin A expression, converge to shape compositional features of the gut microbiome in an advanced intercross population of mice

  1. For each of four chromosomes (Chrom), the positions in Mb are shown for QTLs affecting microbiome abundances and body weight and composition traits as well as possible candidate genes for these QTLs. The confidence intervals (CI) also are given for the QTLs affecting the microbiome traits.
