Method of ImputationAccuracy of GEBV (by Eq. 1)
Stochastic, based on allele frequencies0.70
Missing genotypes converted to zero0.71
Continuous gene content, scaled0.71
Continuous gene content, truncated0.71
  • The different methods of imputing missing genotypes did not affect the prediction accuracies. GEBV, genomic estimated breeding value.
