TableĀ 2 Details of the information used in the different types of preselection

From: Investigating the impact of preselection on subsequent single-step genomic BLUP evaluation of preselected animals

Type of preselection Preselection was based on Information used in preselection model
Genomic GEBV of the selection candidatesa Complete pedigreeb, genotypes of all the animals in generations 13 to 15, phenotypes of all the animals in generations 11 to 14
Parent average Average parental GEBV of the selection candidatesa Complete pedigreeb, genotypes of all the animals in generations 13 and 14, phenotypes of all the animals in generations 11 to 14
Random Random Random numbers
  1. aSelection candidates were the animals in generation 15
  2. bThe complete pedigree consisted of all the animals from the founder generation (generation 0) to the most recent generation (generation 15)
