Validation of genomic national evaluations
Validation of national genomic data is now implemented as an official Interbull service, the GEBV-test. The test has grown from initially only validating production trait protein yield to be able to handle all Interbull traits. In addition to the statistical significance test (t-test) for passing the test a new biological significance criteria has been introduced. Among the countries that have validated for all three production traits, all pass for all traits. For the other traits the results are diverse, indicating that the test works best for the traits with medium to high heritability.
