From: Strategies for implementing genomic selection in family-based aquaculture breeding schemes: double haploid sib test populations

Breeding scheme h2 = 0.05 h2 = 0.1 h2 = 0.4
Double haploid scheme
MatPat 0.568 0.642 0.767
Pat 0.463 0.524 0.639
Mat 0.469 0.527 0.638
Diploid scheme

MinC 0.474 0.567 0.724
RAND 0.476 0.571 0.720
  1. Accuracy of estimated breeding values generated in G2 for the candidate population; standard errors of means of 100 replicates were less than 0.006; MatPat: the test sibs inherited maternal and paternal double haploid genomes in G2; Pat: all test sibs inherited paternal double haploid genomes in G2; Mat: all test sibs inherited maternal double haploid genomes in G2; MaxC: the test population was obtained by maximum coancestry mating; MinC: the test population was obtained by minimum coancestry; RAND: the candidate and test populations were obtained by random mating; in each scheme there were 1500 males and 1500 female candidate sibs, 50 sires and 50 dams were selected each generation and heritability was 0.05, 0.1 or 0.4.
