  • The first two rows show correlation coefficients of genomic estimated breeding values (GEBV) with estimates based only on phenotype (no pedigree, EBV1) for the whole population. The last two rows represent the correlations between GEBV and estimates from the validation set (pedigree is used without phenotypes, EBV2).
