[…] using the rosbreed cherry 6 k snp array v1 (an illumina infinium® ii array) []. the snp curation pipeline was described in cai et al. []. missing data were imputed with beagle as implemented in synbreed [, ] using the hidden markov model and a minor allele frequency of 0.05. individuals or snps missing more than 25% data were removed from analysis. in total, a genome-wide set of 1615 snps […]

[…] feature of both variables selection and shrinkage, whereas brr only shrinks variables. the detailed similarities and differences between genomic prediction models are reviewed by . the r package synbreed was used to fit the three models ()., a fivefold cross-validation was performed to evaluate the prediction performance of the three models. the whole dataset was randomly divided into five […]

[…] β is an n × 1 vector of random effects, and x is the marker matrix. the residuals follow a normal distribution e∼n(0,iσ2), where i is the identity matrix. the gblup and rrblup implementations of the synbreed r package () were used., additionally, a bayesb () model as implemented in the bglr r package () was used to estimate marker effects and to calculate prediction ability. bayesb uses […]
