Table 4 Least-squares means for true genetic gain in generation \({t}\) = 2 according to linkage status 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

Linkage status Starting frequency of the lethal recessive allele
0.05 0.10 0.15
Unlinked 0.518a 0.494b 0.490bc
Linked 0.521a 0.510a 0.477c
