Table 2 Expected precision of GEBV as predicted by Eq. 1 (true precision), Daetwyler’s formula 2 and 3, Eqs. 5 and 7 when 500 SNPs are genotyped in a reference population of size 5000, depending on minimum minor allele frequency (MAF) and heritability

From: An analytical framework to derive the expected precision of genomic selection
