Table 3 Expected precision of GEBV when the distribution of allele frequencies is U-shaped, as predicted by Eqs. 1 and 8, by Daetwyler formula (3) and according to Goddard [20], when 500 SNPs are genotyped in a reference population of size 5000, depending on minimum minor allele frequency (MAF) and heritability
