Table 8 Least-squares means for the proportion of replicates where the frequency of the lethal recessive allele increased from generations \({t}\) = 1 to 2 according to pre-selection strategy and selection strategy at a 0.01 \(\Delta {\text{F}}_{{{\text{true}}4 - 10}}\) in a breeding scheme with genomic prediction
