From: simplePHENOTYPES: SIMulation of pleiotropic, linked and epistatic phenotypes

Fig. 2

Three scenarios of multi-trait genetic architectures implemented in simplePHENOTYPES to simulate two traits Trait j and \(Trait~j'\) controlled by a pool of 20 QTNs. Pleiotropy: 20 QTNs control both traits; partial pleiotropy: 7, 4, and 9 QTNs controlling Trait j, both traits, and \(Trait~j'\) only, respectively; spurious pleiotropy: 10 independent QTNs controlling each trait but in linkage disequilibrium (LD) with one marker that is also in LD with QTNs from the other trait
