Table 2 The number of independent chromosome segments (M e ) for each scenario

From: Across population genomic prediction scenarios in which Bayesian variable selection outperforms GBLUP

  Scenario   M e a  
  Base   185  
  1   1809  
  2   1891  
  3   2435  
  4   2462  
  1. a M e is estimated by Wientjes et al. [25] as: \( {M}_e=\frac{1}{Var\left({\mathbf{G}}_{Pop{.1}_i, Pop{.2}_j}-{\mathbf{A}}_{Pop{.1}_i, Pop{.2}_j}\right)} \); where \( {\mathbf{G}}_{Pop{.1}_i, Pop{.2}_j} \) refers to the genomic relationship between individual i from population 1 and individual j from population 2, \( {\mathbf{A}}_{Pop{.1}_i, Pop{.2}_j} \) refers to the pedigree relationship between individual i from population 1 and individual j from population 2, and the variance is taken over all pair-wise relationships between the individuals in the reference population and the selection candidates
