Predictive ability* of the different methods employed in across-family predictions for five traits in a mice population. Average of ten replicates. Bars sharing the same letter are not different (P >0.05). Traits: weight at 6 weeks (W6W), weight growth slope (WGS), body length (BL), percentage of CD8+ cells (%CD8+), ratio between CD4+ and CD8+ cells (CD4+/CD8+).
