TABLE 5

Predicted accuracy of GEBVs (Embedded Image), predicted accuracy due to LD (Embedded Image), and predicted difference (Embedded Image) between accuracy of GEBVs and accuracy due to LD in generations 6–10 using the accuracies of generations 6–10 from Bayes-B1 (ρ), the accuracies obtained by TP–BLUP divided by the accuracy of TP–BLUP in generation 10 (x1), and the decay of LD at a recombination rate of 0.005 (x2)
