  1. Cumulative response (standard deviation), after one and ten generations of selection (as a percentage of the genetic standard deviation in the reference population) in genetic architectures with a low number of QTL of unequal variance (column 3), a high number of QTL of unequal variance (column 4), a low number of QTL of equal variance (column 5) and a high number of QTL of equal variance (column 6); selection was on breeding values estimated with a Bayesian method (BM), partial least square regression (PLSR), genomic BLUP (GBLUP) or pedigree BLUP (BLUP), or selection was at random (RANDOM); numbers 1 and 5 behind estimation methods indicate the number of generations used in the training population
