Average LD of imputed SNP markers was plotted against their imputation accuracies to examine the relationship between LD and imputation accuracy.
These accuracies were based on methods specifically set up to evaluate the equipment available (i.e., long observation times) and may not be similar to typical operating conditions.
While linear positioning and repeatability commonly are guaranteed in tenths or millionths of an inch, volumetric accuracies typically result in errors of tenths or thousandths.
Flex-Feed polyurethane flexible feed hopper is externally agitated by stainless-steel massaging paddles to eliminate bridging and rat-holing, resulting in feed accuracies of [+ or -] 0.5% to 2%.
Automatic belttracking, tensioning, and cleaning systems help keep the feeder operating at accuracies to 0.25% deviation from setpoint and 0.5% repeatability at 2.
Automatic belt-tracking, tensioning, and cleaning systems help keep the feeder operating at accuracies to +/-0.25% deviation from setpoint and +/-0.5% repeatability at 2[sigma].
Off-the-shell microprocessor controls can deliver accuracies to 0.1% with features such as quick start-up, easy-to-use interactive menu programming, recipe storage, and password protection.
