A simple method of computing restricted best linear unbiased prediction of breeding values



A simple method of computing restricted best linear unbiased prediction of breeding values



Genetics Selection Evolution (Paris) 30(2): 89-101, March-April



Restricted best linear unbiased prediction (restricted BLUP) is derived by imposing restrictions directly within a multiple trait mixed model. As a result, the restricted BLUP procedure requires the solution of high order simultaneous equations. In the present paper, a simple method for computing restricted BLUP of breeding values is presented. The technique is valuable, particularly when a large number of restrictions are imposed in a multiple trait mixed model such as constraints of achieving predetermined relative rates o genetic improvement for all traits.
