A procedure has been developed for the prediction of genetic merit and the simultaneous assessment of multiple genotypes for subsequent use in gene detection. The system utilises a large volume of genotype information but ignores pedigree. With a simple additive model of inheritance, high correlations between estimates of molecular breeding value and highly reliable progeny test estimated breeding values were observed (0.70–0.77).
