Summary and Implications

Genomic prediction involves using high-density marker genotypes to characterize the impact on performance of every region of the genome, and using that information to predict performance of genotyped selection candidates. This is a relatively new technology and is now gaining traction in personalized medicine and in various livestock industries. Our new approach promises to overcome serious limitations with existing techniques for genomic prediction.
