Pedigree BLUP and GBLUP were used to estimate the GEBV: The GBLUP method uses a genomic relationship matrix derived from the SNP markers instead of the pedigree based numerator relationship matrix.
En cuanto a los BLUP, la gran mayoria de los animales se incluyeron en el rango entre -1 y 1 puntos SCS con respecto al promedio, lo que ratifica una importante variabilidad genetica para SCS dentro de la poblacion analizada.
Country-pooled lag-response relationships at the 99th temperature percentile were also derived from the re-centered estimates using location-specific MMPs derived from BLUPs.
Pullar says: "Bulls with improved beef values, based on BLUP analysis of their capabilities, are now starting to earn substantial premiums at both public auction and private breeder sales.
This experiment was conducted to compare the selection accuracy between genomic breeding value estimation using genomic information and breeding value estimation of BLUP using conventional pedigree information after collecting phenotypic and genomic information for the total number of piglets born in Landrace pigs.

More recently we have introduced BLUP data to improve our sire selection: our target is for the entire crop of young bulls to consistently find themselves within the breed's top 1pc on Beef Value, and Calving Value must be above average.
The accessions were clustered on the basis of their standardized BLUP values for starch, fat, CE ADF, and E The clusters were formed using the K-means method implemented in SAS PROC FASTCLUS.
