…conveniently implemented with a mathematically equivalent model
that uses the SNPs to calculate the genomic relationship between
pairs of subjects). Using this approach, we estimated the proportion
of pheno­typic variance explained by the SNPs as 0.45 (s.e. = 0.08,
Table 1), a nearly tenfold increase relative to the 5% explained by
published and validated individual SNPs
