  1. aFor each model and method, we give the length of the confidence set in cM, with a "*" to signify those that contain the HLA*DRB1 locus. We also provide the convex set of the confidence set below the length. For the GLRT/asymptotic procedure with MA, the number of models accounted for is also provided, below the convex set. The 3-LOD intervals are treated as approximate 99% CI [2].
  2. bModels {FR1, FR2}, {NARAC1, NARAC2} and {UK1, UK2} are the models consistent with IBD estimates for the FR, NARAC, and UK data, respectively. A is the disease allele and a the normal allele.
  3. cModels for GLRT/MA are inferred from the IBD estimates at the trait locus and their perturbations. They included the models explained in footnote b for individual analysis.
