Description

A quantitative trait locus (QTL) is a polymorphic locus that contains alleles which differentially affect the expression of a continuously distributed phenotypic trait. Usually a QTL is a marker described by statistical association to quantitative variation in the particular phenotypic trait that is thought to be controlled by the cumulative action of alleles at multiple loci.
