• The effect of high‐density genotypic data and different methods on joint genomic prediction: A case study in large white pigs

    9 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Abstract
    Joint genomic prediction is an attractive method to improve the accuracy of GP by combining information from multiple populations. However, many factors can negatively influence the accuracy of joint GP, such as differences in linkage disequilibrium phasing between single nucleotide polymorphisms and causal variants, minor allele frequencies and causal variants' effect sizes across different populations. The objective of this study was to investigate whether the imputed high-density genotype data can improve the accuracy of joint GP using genomic best linear unbiased prediction...
