Genomic prediction in CIMMYT maize and wheat breeding programs
Genomic selection (GS) has been implemented in animal and plant species, and is regarded as a useful tool for accelerating genetic gains. Varying levels of genomic prediction accuracy have been obtained in plants, depending ...
Genomic prediction in maize breeding populations with genotyping-by sequencing
Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) technologies have proven capacity for delivering large numbers of marker genotypes with potentially less ascertainment bias than standard single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays. Therefore, ...
Heterosis and combining ability among CIMMYT's mid-altitude early to intermediate maturing maize (Zea mays L.) populations
Maize is an important food crop in sub-Saharan Africa. There is an increasing demand for early maturing maize cultivars even though long-season maize cultivars yield more than early maturing cultivars under favourable ...
Genome-enabled prediction of genetic values using radial basis function neural networks
The availability of high density panels of molecular markers has prompted the adoption of genomic selection (GS) methods in animal and plant breeding. In GS, parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric regressions models ...
Factors affecting the accuracy of genotype imputation in populations from several maize breeding programs
Genomic selection and association mapping offer great potential to increase rates of genetic progress in plants. The prediction of genomic breeding values usually requires that missing genotypes be imputed because a ...
A method for combining molecular markers and phenotypic attributes for classifying plant genotypes
Abstract Classifying genotypes into clusters based on DNA fingerprinting, and/or agronomic attributes, for studying genetic and phenotypic diversity is a common practice. Researchers are interested in knowing the minimum ...
