TABLE 5

Estimated (Embedded Image) and predicted (Me and MeH) number of independent chromosome segments. Estimates were obtained from Equation 3 with mean squared accuracy of GBLUP or BayesB from 50 replicates of simulated data (±SE). The number of QTL is 1 Me and predictions are Me = 2NeL/log(4NeL) as in Goddard (2009) and MeH = 2NeL as in Hayes et al. (2009c)
