Table 3 Number of distinct QTN that were edited (95 % confidence interval) across 20 future generations of breeding based on genomic selection plus the promotion of alleles by genome editing (GS + PAGE) when different numbers of sires and different numbers of QTN per sire were edited

From: Potential of promotion of alleles by genome editing to improve quantitative traits in livestock breeding programs
