Different statistical models have been proposed for maximizing prediction accuracy in genome-based prediction of breeding values in plant and animal breeding. However, little is known about the sensitivity of these models with respect to prior and hyperparameter specification, because comparisons of prediction performance are mainly based on a single set of hyperparameters. In this study, we focused on Bayesian prediction methods using a standard linear regression model with marker covariates… CONTINUE READING
