Cross-validated accuracies of prediction of genomic selection using RR-BLUP for seven quality in dependence on the size and composition of estimation sets as well as the relatedness between estimation and test sets.

<p>Estimation sets consisted of (A, top row) 10 male lines, a varying number of female lines, and 100 hybrids derived from them or (B, lower row) 10 male parents, 80 females, and varying numbers of hybrids derived from them. Triangles in red, round discs in green, and squares in blue represent T2, T1, and T0 scenarios with closest, intermediate, and lowest relatedness between estimation and test sets, respectively. Solid red, green, and blue lines indicate accuracies for of prediction for T2, T1, and T0 scenarios with estimation sets consisting of 10 male parents, 80 female parents, and 610 hybrids as reference.</p>
