Table 4 Procedures used to define short, medium and long ROH and the sliding windows’ parameters after QC

From: Signatures of selection in the genome of Swedish warmblood horses selected for sport performance

Type Criteria to define ROH Sliding window  
  Num. SNPs Density (SNP/kb) Max gap (bp) Length (kb) Size (kb) Het.a SNPs Miss.b SNPs  
Short 3 1/100 5000 50–125 5 0 0  
Medium 10 1/100 5000 125–500 12 0 0  
Long 30 1/100 5000 > 500 50 1 1  
  1. aHet: Number of heterozygous SNPs allowed in the sliding window
  2. bMiss: Number of missing SNPs allowed in the sliding window
