Number of observations in training cross-validation (CRV) group and validation group (external validation [EXV]) for response variables EBV and deregressed EBV (DEBV) for several traits studied.

Direct genomic value (DGV) accuracies compared for EBV and deregressed EBV (DEBV) response variables in the external validation dataset. Direct genomic values, DGV_EBV and DGV_DEBV were computed with EBV and DEBV response variables, respectively. For EBV response variables, accuracy was measured as correlation between DGV and EBV. For DEBV response variables, accuracy was computed as correlation between DGV and DEBV divided by square root of heritability.
