  1. The results are given as mean ± standard error.1 r YD , u ^ = accuracy of predicted breeding values (cross-validation correlation between YD and predicted breeding values).2 r YD , g ^ = accuracy of predicted total genetic values (cross-validation correlation between YD and predicted total genetic values).3 b YD , u ^ = regression coefficient of YD on predicted breeding values.4 b YD , g ^ = regression coefficient of YD on predicted total genetic values.
