  1. The table shows the size of the pedigrees, number of individuals that passed filtering and for which recombination estimates were included, and the number of dams and sires of these individuals used for heritability estimation and genome-wide association. By necessity, we inferred recombination rates from an equal number of maternal and paternal chromosomes, but they derive from a much larger number of dams than sires
