Table 3 Mean Prediction accuracies and standard deviation for marker-based predictions (SNP, mRNA, sRNA) of HP for GY. In case not all 100 cross-validation runs resulted with associated markers in the estimation set and thus a prediction was not possible, the numbers of successful predictions is given in brackets

From: Small RNA-based prediction of hybrid performance in maize
