Table 10 Least-squares means for the proportion of replicates where the frequency of the lethal recessive allele increased from generations \({t}\) = 4 to 10 according to pre-selection strategy and starting frequency of the lethal recessive allele at a 0.01 \(\Delta {\text{F}}_{{{\text{true}}4 - 10}}\) in a breeding scheme with genomic prediction

From: Pre-selection against a lethal recessive allele in breeding schemes with optimum-contribution selection or truncation selection
